NHEC and contract line crews have restored power to more than 13,000 members since this morning. Today’s heavy, wet snow is still causing outages affecting approximately 5,600 members. Crews are on scene and working on the largest current outages affecting members in Meredith, Holderness and Moultonborough. Other crews are spread across the central and western parts of the state, where they will be working overnight to restore power.
At this time, we expect to be substantially restored by 10 p.m. tonight. It’s likely that several hundred members who are part of smaller outages will remain without power overnight. If you are without power as of 10 p.m., you should expect to remain without power overnight. Our crews are working as quickly as conditions allow in the field. Gusty winds are adding to the challenge of restoring this storm damage. Thanks for your patience and support of our employees as we work into the night to restore power!
