CL&P Prepares For Summer Heat
The utility is investing about $30 million in system improvements, according to Ken Bowes, vice president of energy delivery services at CL&P.
"While we work year-round to make our system stronger, the specific preparations for the summer months actually begin during the previous fall," Bowes said in a statement.
CL&P has been upgrading underground systems that serve densely populated areas. The utility also uses infrared cameras in helicopters to do surveys of transmission lines. These surveys, along with ground inspections at more than 200 electrical substations help identify potential trouble spots in the distribution system.
