HURRICANE SANDY UPDATE: 1 MILLION HAVE LIGHTS

CON EDISON, NEARING FULL
RESTORATION, HAS 98% COMPLETED

NEW YORK – Con Edison crews, joined by almost 3,500 utility workers from around the country and Canada, continued restoring service today to the remaining customers affected by Hurricane Sandy and Wednesday's Nor'easter.
Just under 20,000 customers remain out in New York City and Westchester, from the 1.067 million affected by both storms. That number does not include 35,000 living in storm-ravaged flood zones in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. Those customers cannot get electric service until their own internal equipment is repaired, tested and certified by an electrician as ready for service.
All of the Staten Island customers that suffered Sandy-related outages have been restored if they were in a position to accept electricity. Just over 300 post-Sandy outages remain. Manhattan currently has 47 customers without electricity, while Brooklyn has 4,200 without power, Queens has 6.000, the Bronx has 890, and Westchester has 8,500.
Con Edison is on pace to have nearly all its Hurricane Sandy outages restored by Sunday night. The company has re-energized over 1.046 million customers, or about 98%, who lost power after Sandy surged tides and winds ashore on October 29.
Sandy caused more than four times as many outages as the next largest storm in the company's history, Hurricane Irene, which created havoc just over a year ago.
Con Edison and mutual aid crews replaced 60 miles of electric cable and responded to 30,000 damage locations. The company went through six months of supplies of utility poles and transformers in a single week.
Customers can check updated outage numbers every 15 minutes on www.ConEd.com/OutageMap.Customers can use their mobile devices, as well as computers, to report power interruptions or service problems at www.conEd.com. They also may call Con Edison at 1-800-75-CONED (1-800-752-6633).
The company is working closely with the New York City Office of Emergency Management, the Westchester Office of Emergency Services and other emergency officials to monitor and respond to the effects of Hurricane Sandy.

Mon Power Restoration Work Continues


More than 14,500 FirstEnergy (NYSE: FE) professionals, outside contractors and utility workers are restoring service to Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) customers following last week's Hurricane Sandy and this week's nor'easter.
Approximately 168,000 JCP&L customers in New Jersey remain without power. Since yesterday, crews restored power to approximately 100,000 customers.
Today, an additional 1,200 line workers are traveling to New Jersey from the northeast to join nearly 7,000 line workers already on the ground. With these additional resources, the majority of customers who do not have power, including those who experienced new outages as a result of the nor'easter, will have power restored by Saturday evening. In some communities where service wires to individual homes must be replaced, power will be restored by Sunday evening. Devastated areas, mostly in the barrier islands where crews were not able to begin service restoration until recently, will extend into next week.
In West Virginia, more than 3,000 utility workers, including 1,300 linemen, continue to repair damage caused by high wind and wet, heavy snow in the higher elevations. Crews have replaced more than 600 distribution poles and work continues to replace an additional 400-plus poles, of which 220 are off-road poles. Currently, approximately 11,700 Mon Power customers remain without service, and power has been restored to about 230,000 customers affected by the storm. Restoration for customers in the most heavily damaged areas, including parts of Barbour, Nicholas, Preston, Randolph, Tucker, Upshur and Webster counties should be completed by the end of the weekend.
As restoration work continues, customers are cautioned never to touch downed lines. Always assume downed wires are carrying electricity and keep children and pets away from them. Downed wires should be reported immediately to your electric company or local police or fire department. Customers should never try to remove trees or limbs from power lines because they could conduct electricity. They should wait for emergency services or utility crews to arrive.

To report an outage, customers should call 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877). If power has been restored to your neighbors, but your power remains out, be sure to report the outage. The issue could be isolated to an individual home and require further repairs.

To ensure the safety of the home's occupants as well as that of utility company employees who may be working on power lines in the area, the proper generator should be selected and installed by a qualified electrician. When operating a generator, always disconnect the power coming into the home so power from the generator is not sent back onto the utility company lines, creating a hazardous situation for utility workers.
