Storm Alert

With the fourth Nor’easter in nearly three weeks right on our door step, we have hundreds of crews positioned across the region should the storm impact our system. Remember to keep safety a priority – before, during and after the storm. Be sure to have a supply of bottled drinking water and canned food handy. Power problems can sometimes interrupt public water supply systems or disable well pumps. It is also a good idea to check on elderly family members, neighbors and others who may need assistance during an outage period.

Energy-efficiency on a large scale.

Managing the energy needs of a big facility can be a daunting prospect. National Grid routinely works with commercial, industrial, and municipal customers to reduce energy costs on a large scale. One way is through cogeneration, or combined heat and power (CHP), a highly efficient form of energy conversion that generates heat and electricity simultaneously, then captures and reuses heat that would otherwise be wasted. CHP is 40% more efficient than heat and power provided separately.

If you have a large-scale facility or a multi-building complex with consistent power and thermal loads, National Grid can connect you with CHP vendors who provide incentives to qualifying customers.
