Restoration Efforts

Company restores power to 232,000 customers 

BERLIN, Conn. (March 10, 2018) – Working non-stop alongside hundreds of out-of-state utility workers, Eversource line and tree crews continue making progress restoring power to thousands of customers in Connecticut after Wednesday’s destructive snow storm. Since the storm began, crews have restored power to approximately 232,000 homes and businesses. The company is on track to have the vast majority of customers without power back on line by 11 p.m. Sunday, with many being restored before that.

“We recognize how disruptive power outages are to our customers’ lives and we greatly appreciate their patience this week as we rebuild and repair electric system,” said Eversource Vice President of Electric Operations in Connecticut Michael Hayhurst. “Our crews are doing a tremendous job, working extended shifts around-the-clock since the first storm began on March 2, many of them don’t have power at their own homes but they are committed to working until every last customer is restored.”

The company reminds customers to be cautious while continuing with their own storm clean up, be careful moving or cutting tree limbs and look for any wires that may be entangled in debris. Customers should always treat any downed power lines as live, stay at least 10 feet away and report it to 9-1-1.
