The utility has awarded a $3.3 billion contract to PSE&G of New Jersey. The 10-year deal takes effect in January 2014.
A supply line problem in Wayne left about 15,000 utility customers without power in parts of New Jersey on Tuesday.
JCP&L said power was restored to all but around 400 customers Sunday evening, while PSE&G no longer had any customers without power.
PSE&G thanked customers for their patience as they work to completely restore power. Meanwhile, JCP&L says it should be able to get everyone back on line by Friday night.
“If they told you in the beginning it won’t be until Friday, then you know it won’t be until Friday,” Ray Popkin, of Livingston, said.
More than three million people are without power in the Northeast after a massive and rare October snow storm hit the region on Saturday.
Severe weather that hit the Tri-State area Thursday evening caused some significant damage to one New Jersey town.
As two PSE&G workers were heading into the basement of a Manville home, the boiler exploded.
A PSE&G crew was working to restore power at a home on 112 Huff Avenue when something in the basement blew.
At last able to get back to their possessions, many in the Garden State are finding them hopelessly destroyed by the flood.
Officials are advising people to stay out of the water. They’re concerned not just about oil and raw sewage, but also chemicals.
Floodwaters rose all across New Jersey, closing roads from side streets to major highways as Irene, the first hurricane to make landfall in the state in more than a century, weakened and moved on, leaving more than 600,000 homes and businesses without power.
“I have a tree that brought down the power lines which caused this pole behind us to break and snap in three spots. We’re bringing crews out here now to repair both locations,” a PSE&G supervisor said.
Heavy rain and flooding Sunday has caused power outages, train service disruptions and has stranded motorists throughout the area. So much rain has fallen that New York City set a record for rainfall on Sunday.
Some New Jersey residents are saying not in their backyard, or the front for that matter. Several trees on their street have been cut without warning, and PSE&G says it had to because it was an emergency.
