Why You Might Not See Our Trucks After a Storm

Posted: September 14, 2017

After storms, we’re often asked, “If your crews are out restoring power, how come we haven’t seen any of your trucks”? SVEC maintains over 4,400 miles of powerlines (enough to reach Alaska) in a service territory covering about 2,000 square miles (about 1.3 million acres). That’s a lot of space to cover and outages can be caused by problems on the line, miles from where the lights are out. Even though you might not see our trucks, we’re out there trying to restore power to everyone, as quickly and safely as possible.
