PSEG: Power Back in Fair Lawn by Midnight Sunday
PSEG has offered no timetable for the restoration of power in Saddle Brook.
The vast majority of Fair Lawn may have its power back by the end of the weekend, according to a PSEG work schedule released by the governor's office Saturday.
Gov. Chris Christie released the restoration plans for New Jersey's three primary power companies Saturday in an effort to provide New Jerseyans greater transparency and certainty about the progress of restoration in their towns.
“While progress has been made in restoring power to many businesses, households, and critical infrastructure in the aftermath of Sandy, there are still over 1.25 million customers without power," Christie said in a statement. "So many New Jerseyans have demonstrated significant patience and resilience through the storm and this initial recovery period, and it is our obligation to get them back online and with the certainty of a timeline they can reliably plan their lives around in the coming days.”
The restoration plans, provided by PSEG, Jersey Central Power and Light and Atlantic City Electric, give a town-by-town breakdown of the number of customers serviced, the number of customers without power and a restoration timetable for the next three days.
Fair Lawn has 39.9 percent of its 13,899 PSEG customers still without power, but restoration is expected by midnight Sunday.
In Saddle Brook, 29.8 percent of the 6,570 customers remain in the dark, but PSEG has yet to release a timetable for full restoration.
