Coakley presses utility to disclose chief’s pay

Northeast Utilities receives formal request

Attorney General Martha Coakley on Tuesday formally ­requested that Northeast Utilities publicly detail its executives’ pay for the past two years, including whatever bonuses, incentives, or other compensation chief executive Thomas J. May received for overseeing the company’s April merger with Boston utility NStar.

Northeast Utilities, which has refused to disclose May’s full 2012 compensation, now has 30 days to respond to the request. If Northeast Utilities does not comply, Coakley can seek action from the state Department of Public Utilities. Under state law, the department has the authority to compel utilities to disclose pay information.
