Unitil's plan helped it respond to outages caused by Isaias

Like Hannibal Smith on “The A-Team,” utilities love it when a plan comes together, especially if it’s their plan for restoring power quickly after a major storm.
Unitil had its plan come together after Tropical Storm Isaias barreled through its territory last month, and that enabled the electric-and-gas utility to escape the criticism fielded by utilities in New York and Connecticut.
Unitil, which primarily serves New Hampshire’s coastal region and capitol, but also has customers in Massachusetts and Maine, lost power to roughly 7,700 of its 106,000 customers the night Isaias struck, but was able to restore service to most of them the next day, Alec O’Meara, its media relations manager told me.
