Summer Storms Can Reap Havoc on Utility Lines

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Summer storms can happen anywhere at any time. Several Mid Atlantic East coast states have been dramatically affected by summer storms over the weekend preceding July 4th. Several states have downed utility lines which have left homeowners and businesses without power for several days.

Utility companies and electric line construction companies have been sending storm response teams out all over the east coast to rebuild electric lines and to restore power to the 500,000 customers still without power.

ElecComm provides assistance to major public utilities throughout New England restoring power during major power outages caused by storms. Our team is fully crossed trained and is ready for dispatch in preparation for any planned or unplanned power outage. Contact us.

4000 Without Power in Boston - ElecComm Crews Mobilizes to Assist NStar Restore Power

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 15, 2012

ElecComm crews mobilized to the City of Boston to assist NStar with the restoration of power and have worked around the clock. There are still 4000 without power.

ElecComm responded to the NSTAR power outage with several crews and helped to restore power to the City of Boston. ElecComm crews ran 13,000 Volt lines along Stuart St. and spliced cable. They also ran cable in the Marriott downtown. ElecComm was ready and dispatched to various locations in the City of Boston.

Below is the original article from Boston.com:

BOSTON — About 4,000 customers remain without power a day and a half after a smoky electrical transformer fire in Boston's Back Bay area knocked out electricity to about 21,000.

NStar crews worked through the night into Thursday morning.

NStar said the goal is to get everyone back online by about noon Thursday.

The utility installed temporary cables and dozens of generators to bring back power until permanent repairs can be made, but the extensive work was taking longer than first expected.

There were still traffic restrictions, but no problems were reported. The Massachusetts Turnpike's Exit 22 ramps to Copley Square and Prudential Center were closed to allow for the electrical work.

All subway stations in the area reopened Wednesday afternoon.
