Sunday, November 04, 2012

Roughly 1.1 million homes and businesses in New Jersey remain without electricity in the wake of Sandy.

Utility crews have restored power to more than 1.5 million customers since the storm hit.

Public Service Electric & Gas says it could take until next week before service is restored to its remaining 607,000 customers.

Jersey Central Power & Light has 569,570 homes and businesses without electricity, while Atlantic City Electric is working to reconnect 17,600 customers.

Orange & Rockland reports about 40,000 outages in the northern counties it serves.

Speaking at a news conference Saturday Gov. Chris Christie said the state has posted revised power restoration plans it received from PSE&G, JCP&L and Atlantic City Electric. The plans show the status of restoration projections at the municipal level.
