Eversource Creates New Technology to Reduce Outage Time
Eversource has created some new technology that’s aimed at reducing the amount of time customers are affected by power outages.
It’s called a trailered rapid pole, and it can take on the electrical load of a broken pole until it is repaired.
Normally it takes a few hours for poles to be fixed, but crews can have the rapid pole up and running in just minutes because it’s powered by batteries.
Eversource wants to have eight of these poles placed across the state by the end of the year.
