PSNH Crews Deployed to New Jersey
Crews to Help Customers of Jersey Central Power & Light Impacted by Hurricane Sandy
Fifteen Public Service of New Hampshire line crews, along with support staff and supervisors, were deployed to New Jersey this morning to help restore power to customers still impacted by Hurricane Sandy and this week's nor'easter.
PSNH crews will assist customers of Jersey Power and Light, a company of First Energy. New Jersey experienced widespread power outages due to the epic devastation of Hurricane Sandy, a storm which left more than 8 million electric customers without power from Maryland to Maine. As of Friday afternoon, about 150,000 Jersey Power and Light customers remain without power.
Joining PSNH crews in providing mutual aid efforts to areas still impacted by Hurricane Sandy are crews and personnel from other Northeast Utilities (NU) companies, NSTAR, Western Mass Electric Company, and Connecticut Light and Power. The mutual aid efforts come after NU operating companies restored power to approximately 1.5 million customers across its service territory in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
