PSE&G Power Restoration Update – Nov. 4, 2012 – Hurricane Sandy
PSE&G continues to make progress restoring customers. About 78 percent of the 1.7 million customers affected by Hurricane Sandy have been restored. As of 11:00 a.m., 493,000 customers without power and estimate that we will be able to restore power to nearly 100,000 customers today.
We have now restored 95 percent of our customers in our Southern region that includes portions of Burlington, Mercer, Camden and Gloucester counties. As work is completed, crews in South Jersey will be reassigned to work in other parts of the state.
At the request of the Governor, we have provided details on our work plan for the next three days. It is available on our website (www.pseg.com/workplan). The number of customers expected to be restored is an estimate based on work currently assigned and will change based on emergent conditions and the need to reprioritize work. An updated plan will be posted later this evening.
Some current restoration statistics:
- We have restored power to all refineries and 78 percent of the gas stations in our service territory have power.
- 80 percent of schools in our service territory have power.
- We are working with local officials to target restoration of power for polling stations where possible.
PSE&G’s mobile Customer Service Centers: To provide relief to communities particularly hard hit by the storm, PSE&G has established mobile Customer Service Centers (CSCs). These locations are providing ice, drinking water and power strips for recharging devices at no cost. Food is being given out at our centers in Newark, Jersey City and Hoboken. In Jersey City tomorrow, we will have tankers of fresh drinking water, rather than bottles.Customers will need to bring containers to fill. The company has representatives at these centers to provide customers with information about our efforts to restore power. The current list of mobile CSCs is below.

“We understand that this is hard on our customers – it is also hard on our employees, who live in almost every town we serve,” said Ralph LaRossa, president and chief operating officer of PSE&G. “We appreciate the patience our customers are showing and the words of encouragement being offered to our employees and the thousands who have come from around the country to help us restore power. Please understand that this is dangerous work. We need to be focused on thoroughly, carefully and safely restoring power. Please do not distract our employees from the task at hand.”
