That would make no sense he is renting space not power.

I think renters insurance would cover loss of use. My home owners insurance did, minus the deductibles though.

Yes, you can claim your renter insurance/homeowner insurance. However, most of them have deductible. My home owner insurance deductible is $500. I don't think all foods rotten in my frige worth $500 so that I didn't bother to claim last time after Irene.

Yeah, unfortunately, I don't think you're entitled to any credit in a situation like this. But I completely understand where you might be coming from, having just had a baby (and a preemie, no less). Now you have all those hospital bills on top of the rent and everything else. I'm sure you don't want to lose any more money to any more channels than necessary. You're just covering your bases. I get it.

Good luck to you and your family, and stay warm!
yes, i agree, as it's not like a landlord is required to provide backup power in the event of a storm. this scenario is simply out of the landlord's control.

congrats on the newborn!

You have no claim, it was a natural disaster, everyone suffered.

The OP already acknowledged this, 3 days ago:

"Thanks for your response. You have persuaded me not to pursue a reduction in our rent"
