PILGRIM BACK ON GRID AFTER WEEK-LONG SHUTDOWN

The region's power grid, which was under pressure to keep up with rising demand during the recent cold snap, got a jolt Wednesday evening as temperatures rose and Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station began generating energy again after shutting down during Thursday's snowstorm.

During the storm, a static line crashed on Route 6 in Sandwich, bringing down a 345,000-kilovolt Eversource transmission line that serves the power plant in Plymouth. The fallen line was repaired and the line was returned to service at 8 p.m. Friday. A second high voltage line that serves Pilgrim remained in service through the storm but the coastal plant shut down due to requirements stemming from its previous experiences during major storms.
