A shortage of power transformers is impacting utility companies in Maine and whole USA.

Transformers are in short supply right now. Transformer manufacturers have blamed staffing issues and material shortages for the backlog, according to a statement from Central Maine Power Company.

“Everybody was experiencing this delay in both delivery and delay in getting new production spots for future deliveries,” Desrosiers said. “We’re seeing lead times on ‘pad mount’ transformers out well over a year for delivery.”
