Spring is when many people and businesses in the southeast U.S. begin preparing for hurricane season, which officially starts June 1. For utility companies, this is the time of year when you begin preparing for the worst yet hoping for the best, reviewing specific materials for stock levels, discussing supply strategies with your vendors, and continuing to work with operations to determine future needs.
