What Happened

An electric utility in Maine needed to replace a telephone pole that had previously been damaged. This required an outage to approximately 1,500 customers for about 6 hours.

Services Provided

Rather than having approximately 1,500 customers experience the 6-hour power outage, the utility partnered with Prime Power Rentals to provide temporary power to their customers while the necessary work was completed.
