Eversource Crews Make Significant Progress, Will Continue Working Until Every Customer is Restored

MANCHESTER, N.H (January 26, 2023) – As the long stretch of winter weather that brought down trees and caused damage to the electric system across New Hampshire exits the region, Eversource’s thousands of field employees continue working around the clock until every customer is restored. Since Sunday, the energy company’s lineworkers and remote system operators have restored power to more than 255,000 customers in the Granite State, including some customers more than once. 

Tree limbs remain weighed down and weakened across the state, and with gusty conditions in the forecast through tonight, additional scattered outages could be possible. Even as some of the additional resources who came to New Hampshire to support the massive restoration effort begin to demobilize and return home later today, Eversource will have crews actively responding to existing outages and any new issues that may arise.    


“The prolonged stretch of winter weather over the last week wreaked havoc on trees across New Hampshire, and we’re grateful to our friends from neighboring states and Canada for their support, as well as our customers for their patience and understanding as our crews worked in challenging conditions to respond to public safety priorities, clear damage and make time-intensive repairs,” said Eversource New Hampshire President of Electric Operations Doug Foley. “With gusty conditions lingering in the forecast through tonight and already weakened trees continuing to pose a threat to the electric system, our dedicated employees will continue working around-the-clock until every customer is restored as this massive restoration effort enters its final stages.”

Heavy, wet snow accumulating on trees and tree limbs, bringing them down and damaging the electric system was the primary cause of outages, also resulting in more than 240 blocked roads and more than 75 broken utility poles across the state. Eversource reminds customers to please be aware of already weakened tree limbs and other potential falling debris when conducting their own storm cleanup.
