Utility testing: It's summer, active hurricane and tornado season in the USA. HD Electric is preparing for storm season, building inventory levels to fulfill customer needs this summer. In particular, V-Watch Personal Voltage Detectors are available to keep workers safe, especially during storm restoration work.
