On Monday, March 30th, Eversource began site preparation for a 24.9-megawatt (MW) energy storage system located at the Provincetown Transfer Station. Following site preparation, crews will begin construction of the facility and excavate trenches along Route 6 and Race Point Road. Construction in public roadways will be to install underground duct bank, which will house electric cable. The underground cables will be used to connect the new Energy Storage Facility to the local distribution system.
Work hours will be Monday through Saturday 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Construction activities will not interfere with Transfer Station operations. Due to weather or other unexpected circumstances, the work hours may be extended or performed outside of normal construction hours. For more information about the energy storage facility, and how to contact the Eversource outreach team, please see the attached project briefing sheet.
Eversource is committed to being a good neighbor and doing our work with respect for you and your property. If you have questions about this project or the hours of construction, please call 1-800-793-2202 or email us at ProjectInfo@eversource.com.

The safety of the Eversource employees, their customers, and the public is our top priority during the ongoing coronavirus public health crisis. Their commitment to safety, first and always, is continuous. At the same time, Eversource must fulfill its foundational mission to deliver safe, reliable services to our customers, in support of the economic health of New England and the basic needs of society.
This mission is more important than ever at this deeply unsettled time. Eversource continues to call on their employees and contractors to perform essential work in the field that maintains and improves the reliability of our networks and serves customers’ best interests, while also adapting our work practices to incorporate social distancing, heightened hygiene, and other best practices to protect their, and the public’s, health and avoid the spread of Coronavirus.
Essential work is activity that maintains or improves the condition of our system and supports our delivery of safe and reliable energy and other services, including the replacement or installation of electrical lines, structures/poles, and related equipment.
During this time, Eversource will follow social distancing and other health and safety guidelines in our community outreach efforts, including becoming more reliant on other forms of notifications, including letters, email and/or phone calls, instead of door hangers and in-person visits.
