PSE&G Storm Restoration Update - Nov 3, 2012 11 a.m.

NEWARK, N.J., Nov. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PSE&G has restored service to 65 percent of those who lost power in Hurricane Sandy.  In the last 24 hours, we restored service to all major gas refineries and 75% of the schools in our service territory.

Also in the last 24 hours we energized all of our switching stations and restored 16 substations.  While energizing switching and substations does not automatically turn the lights on, it is a major step forward and allows us to focus on our distribution systems that are closer to the customer.

Currently about 73 percent of all PSE&G customers have power while 607,000 customers are still without power. At its peak, the storm impacted 1.7 million of PSE&G's 2.2 million electric customers.

The switching stations that were re-energized are the backbone of our system and they feed substations which we continue to work around the clock to restore.  The 16 substations that we restored in the last 24 hours serve parts of Union Township, Kenilworth, Cranford, and Roselle Park, Bound Brook, Port Newark, Ironbound section of Newark, Hillside, Irvington, Elizabeth, North Plainfield, Bayonne, Jersey City, Linden and Carteret. 

We currently have 2,794 mutual aid line workers and tree contractors from out-of-state helping us on the ground.  An additional 319 new workers are due today and 300 more are being sent from Washington, DC.   Another 102 out-of-state personnel who specialize in substations are here assisting our efforts.

PSE&G is focusing its efforts this weekend on those areas where we can restore power to the maximum number of customers. In addition to the municipalities listed below, we continue to address priority customers including hospitals, public safety facilities, schools and water systems throughout our service territory.
