Regional Rodeo

Each year Eversource employees show off their skills at the Regional Rodeo and faceoff with peers from across the company in a variety of competitions for overhead and underground lineworkers, along with electric meter operations employees. ​​​​ 

The event, open to the public, provides an opportunity to see up-close the skills and knowledge mechanics use to ensure reliable service for customers.

More than 100 employees competed at the 2023 rodeo, which included bucket rides and games for kids and food trucks for the competitors, spectators and judges.

The Eversource Foundation and the ES Veteran’s Association presented grants of $2,500 each during the opening ceremonies this year to four regional organizations that help veterans.
