After Nemo dropped an unprecedented three feet of snow over Connecticut, making road’s impassable even days later, Connecticut Light & Power and Yankee Gas are part of a coordinated effort to assist the state and the 1.2 million customers the utilities serve.

CL&P and Yankee Gas will deploy approximately 50 pieces of snow removal equipment, including backhoes, dump trucks and trailers, as well as more than 40 employees to operate the equipment. The utilities are working closely with the Connecticut Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security, and the municipalities to coordinate the most efficient use of these resources.
