Governor Lamont tweeted Saturday that the list should serve as firm deadlines for Eversource. The governor has taken the energy company to task all week long, since Tuesday’s storm.

Many customers have not had power since Tuesday afternoon. Eversource plans on having 90% of its customers restored by Sunday evening.

Most of the towns will be substantially restored by Tuesday evening, according to Eversource. A town is substantially complete when less than 1% of the community remains without power.

Since Saturday evening, Eversource has restored around 750,000 customers affected by Isaias with more than 1,700 crews.
