More than 900 Eversource Crews Repairing Damage, Restoring Power Across New Hampshire

Jan 24, 2023

Storm power restoration

Power restored to more than 185,000 customers since Sunday

Estimated Restoration Times to be Available for all Customers Today

MANCHESTER, N.H (January 24, 2023) – With the support of crews from neighboring states and Canada, thousands of Eversource field resources continue working around the clock to support public safety efforts, make repairs and restore power to customers following the most recent weather front that dropped significant amounts of heavy, wet snow on top of already stressed trees and caused damage to the electric system in regions across the state. As the massive restoration effort continues, the energy company is monitoring the next front forecasted to bring additional heavy, wet snow, possible icing and gusty conditions to New Hampshire on Wednesday and Thursday with the potential to cause more outages – particularly when combined with the recent impacts and tree stress caused by successive recent storms.

Since Sunday, Eversource lineworkers and remote system operators have restored power to more than 185,000 customers across the Granite State. All customers currently without power will be provided an estimated restoration time today, and the additional crews and resources brought into New Hampshire to support the current restoration effort will remain in the state to respond to tomorrow’s winter weather as well.

“Additional crews and resources continue to arrive in New Hampshire to support our massive restoration effort, as more than 900 line, tree and service crews are working tirelessly to support public safety priorities, clear damage, make repairs and restore power to customers,” said Eversource New Hampshire President of Electric Operations Doug Foley. “After several rounds of heavy, wet snowfall, many trees and tree limbs are already weighed down and weakened, and with another front forecasted to arrive tomorrow, more damage to the electric system is likely with the cumulative impacts of these successive winter storms. We will continue working urgently to restore customers currently without power, and those additional crews and resources will remain in the state tomorrow as we continue working around the clock until every customer has power.”

Customers in every region of New Hampshire were impacted, with the majority of current outages concentrated in the communities served by Eversource’s area work centers in Bedford, Epping, Keene, Nashua and Rochester. To facilitate local restoration efforts in those hardest-hit communities, the energy company has deployed mobile command centers to Epping, Durham and Keene.

In addition to the more than 900 line, tree and service crews, the energy company also has nearly 200 damage assessors and 100 wire guards patrolling the system. As damage still needs to be cleared and weakened trees remain a threat to cause additional damage through the next wave of winter weather, Eversource continues to urge customers to always stay clear of downed wires and report them immediately to 9-1-1.
