Island Restoration Will Occur When Conditions Permit by NHEC | Mar 24, 2017 | Uncategorized | 0 comments When conditions on the lakes allow, NHEC line crews will be making their way out to various islands where outages have occurred. Some outages have occurred as a result of Winter Storm Stella on March 14. At present, ice conditions are too dangerous to transport employees and equipment to islands to make repairs to the electric distribution system. The decision to send crews to the islands will be made when conditions are for safe passage to and from the islands. We regret the inconvenience, however the safety of our employees and members is our top priority.
