Report Faults National Grid For Storm Response

A report released yesterday  is critical of National Grid's response to an October storm that caused 144-thousand residential and business power outages in Rhode Island.  The Division of Public Utilities and Carriers says the company didn't respond as quickly as its counterparts in other states, and that the five days it took to fully restore power was 36-hours longer than it would have been if National Grid had been faster to respond to changing weather conditions.  The state agency says the utility failed to acquire additional resources in a timely manner and misrepresented the time it would take to restore service.
