Once the merger process is complete, Connectiv will be a di- versified energy company with over one million customers, more than 5,500 megawatts of electric generation resources, approxi- mately $2.2 billion in annual rev- enues and assets exceeding $6 bil- lion.

Levinson said numerous loca- tions were built into the existing communications ring where voice, data, and even Internet providers will be able to connect to the existing information high- way structure, rather than building their own. To further support its offering to telecommunications and private customers, a five-mile fiber optic ring is currently under construc- the many communities we serve; or connecting increased value to our shareholders; our combined company will literally be in touch with our customers, communities, and shareholders," Cosgrove said.
