With another above-average Atlantic hurricane season forecast for 2022, beginning June 1, the energy company is highlighting those preparedness efforts and encouraging customers to also be ready with a plan of action in recognition of National Hurricane Preparedness Week (May 1-7).
“Emergency preparedness is a constant focus for us as we work to ensure safe, reliable service for our customers no matter what New England’s notoriously harsh weather brings,” said Eversource President of New Hampshire Operations Doug Foley.
With trees being the number one cause of power outages during storms, trimming and removing hazardous trees that threaten overhead electric lines is crucial to providing customers with reliable power in all types of weather.
The energy company’s comprehensive year-round tree trimming program is fundamental to emergency preparedness, and Eversource is investing $35 million in tree trimming across New Hampshire this year with work scheduled along more than 2,500 miles of electric distribution lines.
