Eversource Upgrading Electric System in Colchester
This summer, the company is investing more than
$825,000 in system improvements.  Work includes installing new,
stronger, and thicker utility poles and plastic-coated
electric lines, which can better withstand extreme
weather. The project includes replacing approximately 87 utility
poles and installing about one mile of tree wire in town.
The work is taking place along Lebanon Ave and Norwich Ave.
Customers may experience short power interruptions at times during
the course of the project so crews can safely perform the work.
The project is expected to be complete by October.
