Is Electricity a "Product"?

So asks William Ruskin over at Toxic Tort Litigation Blog.  (I missed this nugget back in September, and think it worth mentioning, albeit tardily).   Ruskin comments on a recent Connecticut decision holding that "once electricity entered the homeowner's residence, it constituted a 'product' rather than a 'service' and that plaintiff could  proceed under the Connecticut Product Liability Act."   Ruskin considers this to be the "emerging majority view nationally."
