If you live in Boston, ignore that e-mail you may have gotten from National Grid about power outages tomorrow

Well, we might see power outages tomorrow, but for some reason, National Grid decided to e-mail its Boston gas customers and tell them to call National Grid should their power go out, which would be a waste of everybody's time, since National Grid doesn't provide electricity in Boston and it's Eversource you want to contact should your power go out.

Thanks for posting this! Help confirmed a few things I've been hearing about electricity. People in Cali I know have experienced outages lately. Maybe it's in anticipation of the expected winds. Either way people should power up and make sure things are charged.

National Grid provides electricity in Hyde Park, a holdover from the days of the Town of Hyde Park.

They sent it to people nowhere near Hyde Park, like JP.

But you did note that they don't provide electricity to anyone in Boston. Hyde Park still counts as Boston, right?

Sorry but not even close National Grid does not provide electricity to Hyde Park. Adam is 100% correct. Eversource provides gas and electric to Hyde Park the rest of the citiy’s gas system is provided by National Grid.

I'm always confusing the two. Even worse, I run by the Eversource electrical yard constantly.

Back when it was Boston Gas and Boston Edison, nobody had any trouble figuring this stuff out.

There's a part of Hyde Park (maybe WR also, dunno), that was part of the old Commonwealth Gas. Totally non-interconnected pipe system. The office was up on Bussey St in Dedham.

They may have some interconnections now, to improve the system, but again, don't know.
