Post-Hurricane Irene Electricity Update from 9/1 at 4:30PM
I have just received an update from PSE&G on the electric power situation in Englewood. As of 4:30 pm, both the New Milford and the Englewood substations are back in full operation. Power has been restored to almost all PSE&G customers in Englewood. They now list on their website that less than 500 customers are without power. They have asked me to encourage residents to help reduce the demand on the electric grid by reducing power use, if possible, for the next few days. Please turn off lights when you leave a room and increase the temperature on your air conditioner to save energy and help avoid rolling blackouts for the Labor Day weekend.
If you do not have power restored by Friday morning, please call the City Manager’s office so that he can ensure that PSE&G has your address on their worksheet. His phone number is 201-871-6637. It is PSE&G’s goal to have all electric service restored in Englewood by Friday at noon.
As I receive updates, I will post the new information on the City’s website and here.
