Eversource says it hopes to restore all of its customers by the end of the day on Sunday.
Even with 500 utility poles broken, 87 miles of electric lines down and nearly 400 blocked roads that had to be addressed, we’re on track to having the majority of customers restored by 9 p.m. We are committed to working nonstop until every customer is back on.
