More PSE&G Help is on the way to Restore South Jersey
PSE&G is sending a total of 130 employees to assist Atlantic City Electric in their efforts to restore service in the southern part of the state, which suffered extreme damage from Friday’s thunder storms.
One hundred linemen, as well as maintenance, safety and support personnel are assembling at the Atlantic City Racetrack and will work from there this week to assist in the restoration efforts. The first contingent of 50 employees is already at work repairing lines.
In addition to PSE&G volunteers, the company has sent 10 contractor tree crews to assist with vegetation clearing and six contractor line crews to work in South Jersey.
PSE&G coordinates with Mid-Atlantic Mutual Aid Assistance (MAMA), an organization of nine utilities that assist one another following storms and other major outages.
More than 2 million customers in the Mid-Atlantic region are still without service this morning, and PJM, the regional grid operator for the Mid-Atlantic region, has issued a Hot Weather Alert for today and tomorrow.
PSE&G’s utility personnel are volunteering their time and working through the holiday to restore service as quickly as possible.
Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) is New Jersey’s oldest and largest regulated gas and electric delivery utility, serving nearly three-quarters of the state’s population. PSE&G is the winner of the ReliabilityOne National Achievement Award for superior electric system reliability. PSE&G is a subsidiary of Public Service Enterprise Group Incorporated (PSEG) (NYSE:PEG), a diversified energy company (www.pseg.com).
