CEI WELCOMES PUCO INVESTIGATION

 CLEVELAND, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company officials say the company welcomes a PUCO study requested by Cleveland Mayor Michael White on CEI's response to the July 28 storm. The company said, "We expect the study will put aside any question of the company's preparation and commitment to prompt storm restoration for all of our customers in Northeast Ohio. The study will provide proof that CEI employees worked diligently and prudently in restoring power to the more than 300,000 customers affected by the July 28 storm."
 The July 28 storm affected more customers than any storm in CEI history. Over 150 CEI crews worked around-the-clock along with more than 50 crews from neighboring utilities to restore badly damaged poles and lines. By Sunday morning, over 90 percent of the affected customers had power restored. The storm downed more than 300 main power lines and 700 utility poles. About 75 miles of wire were replaced during the week-long effort to restore electric service. CEI estimates the cost of storm damage repair at $8 to 9 million.
