How We Restore Power

CMP follows an orderly process to safely restore service after a storm.

  1. Safety comes first. We work with towns and the state to de-energize downed lines, clear roads, and restore critical facilities. 
  2. We repair major facilities. Crews go where they can restore lots of customers quickly. 
  3. We restore equipment and lines that serve smaller groups of customers. 
  4. We focus on restoring service to individual homes and buildings. This phase may start while we're still doing higher-priority work.
