JCP&L has experienced extensive infrastructure damage within its transmission and distribution systems, especially in Northern Jersey. The damage includes hundreds of downed trees, approximately 200 broken poles and 1,000 spans of conductor.
JCP&L continues its efforts to restore service, with public and employee safety at the forefront. Restoration efforts are focused on reducing hazards associated with downed power lines and road closures due to downed power lines.
Public safety has been our initial top priority. JCP&L crews continue to focus on safely clearing downed wires, opening roads for emergency access and restoring service to our customers.
Estimated time of restoration. While we anticipate the majority of customers will be restored by late Tuesday night, the anticipated restoration for customers in the hardest hit areas of northern Morris and Sussex counties is Wednesday, March 7 at 11:30 p.m.
Please remind everyone to stay away from downed wires and report issues to JCP&L.
