Why does it take so long to get the power back on?

Crew safety

One reason it takes so long to restore power is to ensure the safety of the crews. For a large outage, each crew will repair one circuit at a time. They start at the substation and work toward the end of the circuit. If more than one crew worked on a particular circuit, there is a possibility that someone could be electrocuted.
