Eversource Investing $74 Million to Improve Reliability and Help Reduce Storm-Related Tree Damage
Feb 2, 2023
When the power goes out during a storm, it’s most often caused by trees falling on power equipment – and with the changing climate driving more frequent severe weather, tree trimming and removal near overhead lines is imperative to help fortify the electric system. Eversource’s team of licensed arborists works year-round developing and implementing its comprehensive, data-driven maintenance program to enhance system reliability for customers. This year, the energy company is investing $74 million in tree management as part of a continuing goal to balance the need for electric reliability with the natural beauty that communities value.
