Electrifying Maine: The Central Maine Power Experience

CMPHardHatJoin us tomorrow evening at 6:30 PM for a very special panel presentation and the last in a series of programs related to our current museum exhibit, Wired! How Electricity Came to Maine.

“Electrifying Maine: The Central Maine Power Experience” will feature four current and veteran CMP workers telling stories about their experiences on the job. Line Trainer Nick Vermette moderates a panel that includes Teresa Lang, Customer Service Supervisor; Jim Wright, Transmission Supervisor (and CMP public service announcement TV personality: “No line is safe to touch–ever!”); and retired repairman, Andy DeBiasio.

They’ll discuss and tell stories about what it takes to keep the grid going, tools and technologies, responding to storms and major outages, service calls in years past, and how they keep us safe.

The Wired! exhibit will be open after the panel presentation for browsing, free of charge. The exhibit comes down on May 27.
