A top United Illuminating official said Monday afternoon that his company is concerned about the Mill River substation—and the 14,000 New Haven customers who rely on it for power.
Speaking at the governor’s noon press conference, the official, UI Vice-President Anthony Marone III (pictured), said at this point his company doesn’t see a need to de-energize the plant.
But he said the company is concerned and keeping a close eye on it as waters rise on the Mill River at the next high tide. The station powers the downtown area.
