A new service truck with a hybrid-powered lift is now being used by PSNH for such tasks as residential service and streetlight maintenance.

The hybrid was recently unveiled after a team made up of PSNH and Northeast Utilities (NU) staff worked for more than a year to develop a design that would improve upon the smaller trucks in the fleet that are used for service tasks. Thanks to the new design and proper grounding, the new truck can also be used for higher voltage work.
