PSE&G : 10 Days till full Restoration ,but Majority of Customers will be Restored before then

Our best forecast as of now is that we will have virtually all of our impacted customers restored to service within the next seven to 10 days. THE MAJORITY OF CUSTOMERS WILL BE RESTORED BEFORE THEN.  There may still be isolated pockets of customers who have individual flooding or downed line issues that may take slightly longer.

OUTAGE UPDATE: At this time approximately 1 million PSE&G customers have had their power restored following Hurricane Sandy. About 716,000 customers are currently without power.  The storm impacted 1.7 million of PSE&G’s 2.2 million electric customers.

Our crews work to restore power to the largest numbers of customers first, taking into account “priority customers” such as hospitals, police and fire stations, water and sewer facilities, communications facilities (TV, radio and telephone), and customers on life-sustaining medical equipment (See graphic illustration below). If someone in your family relies on life-sustaining medical equipment, it is important to let the utility know as soon as the equipment is installed. We then focus on restoring power to homes and businesses, starting with the circuits with the largest numbers of customers.

  1. This is the new normal.

  2. Our elected and appointed leaders (read: mayor, school board, etc) need to be called to task on this. We are one of the largest school districts in the area, and a large municipality in terms of area and bank rolls. We are way on the bottom of PSEG’s list. I have driven through many other towns since Tuesday — without exception each have gotten most of the power back, but the west side remains largely dark. To have the school board and village web site say there is no estimate for power to be back is nonesense. The mayor and school board should not have been holding coffee chat at Somerville school this week (as they were) — they should been literally been banging on PSEG’s headquarters demanding better service and information., Lets not forget this next time its election day.

  3. I drove through Lodi, Maywood, Garfield tonite. All had power. I guess thats where the PSEG employees live so they take care of their own first. They dont give a crap about Ridgewood. They never did and never will. Their service sucks and their lack of planning for a forecast storm is inexecusable. THere should have been out of state crews here. Havent seen one. Also, rumors that they turned away Alabama utility workers since they were not union members.
