BOSTON (WHDH) - From coastal concerns to fear of power problems, companies were prepping for a power struggle on Monday.
During Tuesday’s storm, Eversource crews are expected to be out making power is getting to your house and keep your lights on.
Poles, wire reels, transformers and truck were all staged and ready to match with a March snowstorm.
Eversource has been working on its technology, and has the capability to reroute power around a problem remotely, even before a crew can get to the scene.
While they prepare for the possibility of trees and branches bringing down powerlines, they say customers should also be prepared.
Eversource says they’ll have hundreds of crews manning trucks, along with line and tree contractors available to help. The crews will be spread out across the state during the storm, but won’t be outside if the wind is too strong.
