Just so everyone knows because Unitil wants a rate increase. Unitil does not have ANYONE working nights or weekends. Not even a 2 or 3 man crew. Not even 1. If there is a gas leak or a powerline arcing they have to call someone in. Most of the time those called in are coming from out of town such as Winchendon.

Ask one of them next time you see them. The reason is they say Unitil states it is not cost effective to have a night/weekend crew on duty.

So any emergency after after 5 pm will be a 1 hour response time.

You would think a utility company would have at least a 2 man crew on duty 24 hrs. 7 days.

I'm new to the area. Are brownouts common around here? I thought that was a big city thing, not a rural issue. Lived in a lot of small towns but never had a brownout until I moved here.
