Eversource Completes Significant Restoration in New Hampshire After Historic Nor’easter Caused Widespread Damage
Mar 17, 2023
Following this week’s powerful nor’easter—the 10 th major storm of the season—which caused widespread outages and damage to the electric system, Eversource deployed more than 2,200 line, tree, and service crews across the state to work around-the-clock to restore power to its customers. Despite historic snowfall in parts of the state, damaging wind gusts, and extremely difficult travel conditions, the energy company has restored power to more than 99% of its customers using innovated tools to meet that milestone ahead of schedule. Since the start of the nor’easter on Monday night, Eversource has restored power to more than 243,000 customers by lineworker repairs and remote switching by system operators, and will continue to work until every customer in New Hampshire has their power restored.
