MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s largest utility has put all aspects of electric systems operations and outage response under one roof to better respond to power failures.

Eversource says in addition to assessing outage reports and dispatching line crews, control center operators are able to remotely isolate trouble spots and reroute power around them. The grid modernization technology is capable of dramatically lessening the impact of a power outage, bringing many customers back on line within minutes of an interruption.

Eversource says it also has expanded its Incident Command Center, which opens during significant outage events, to ensure a coordinated and integrated approach to restoration. It recently started a technology that will provide greatly enhanced outage information, including estimated restoration times.
