BERLIN, Conn. (February 27, 2023) – With the first measurable snowfall of the year expected  to start in Connecticut tonight and continue through Tuesday, Eversource is prepared and ready to respond to any storm-related damage to the electric system or power outages.  The energy company is bringing in hundreds of additional crews as well as checking equipment and supplies in preparation and is encouraging customers to also prepare for the possibility of outages.

“We’ve been keeping a close eye on this storm, monitoring several forecasts for the last several days and are ready to respond and will adjust our plan if needed,” said Eversource President of Connecticut Electric Operations Steve Sullivan. “We will have crews prepositioned around the state before the storm hits so they can quickly respond but we remind customers the snow and wind could cause visibility issues and travel problems, making it more challenging for our crews to get to damage locations and restore power.” 

As reminders, Eversource urges customers to always stay clear of downed wires and to report them immediately to 911. Be sure to report any outage online at or by calling 800-286-2000. Customers who signed up for the company’s two-way texting feature can send a text to report an outage and receive outage updates as they happen.  

Eversource natural gas customers should be aware that some natural gas heating systems may be affected by a power outage and it’s important to keep gas meters and outdoor vents clear of snow and ice buildup. Customers should carefully remove snow and ice with a broom or by hand. Do not use a shovel or kick the gas meter which can damage the meter. Customers should also immediately leave their home or business if they smell gas and call 911. 
The energy company also offers the following tips to help customers prepare for emergencies:
