Public Utilities Regulatory Authority
Steve Mitnick is the Editor-in-Chief of Public Utilities Fortnightly and the president of Lines Up, Inc.
It was almost Christmas Eve when Public Utilities Fortnightly visited Connecticut's capital to talk shop with the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority. Stockings hung from many of the cubicles where PURA Staff toiled to put the finishing touches on open dockets, to ensure it would be happy holidays for all in the Nutmeg State. No coal in those stockings methinks. Somewhere, perhaps in New Haven or Bridgeport, Santa was busy too, readying his electric sleigh for the midnight trip to every chimney; the reindeer no longer required, replaced by lithium-ion batteries. Might Santa be next, rendered unnecessary once the autonomous sleigh becomes available?
