Radio Show #348 – Lighting Up Western Mass. with Priscilla Ress of Eversource

Heading into the weekend, it would appear that the long wait for the restoration of your electricity is at an end – at least as far as Eversource customers are concerned.

This special program may be especially welcomed by those who are weary of outage maps and voicemail in obtaining information on their electricity status.

In this interview, Priscilla Ress, spokesperson for Eversource, indicates the success the power company is having in finalizing the return of all their customer’s commercial and residential power.

This storm was deceptively brutal, and the repairs and cleanup operations have been extraordinary and challenging.

You’ll hear precisely why in this conversation.
