Utility Workers

Submitted by: Jennifer Kramer    

PSE&G has faced many a daunting storm, but the utility has never been hit with one that caused as much damage as Superstorm Sandy. Sandy left 1.7 million of its customers without power. Utility workers didn't think twice. Those who lost their cars and homes put their own lives on hold. An unprecedented number left their families and their own hardships to begin to help people recover, to bring light and heat back to the people of New Jersey. They worked to clean up power plants, restore power, and tend to operational needs. They also delivered 90,000 bags of ice, 60,000 cases of water and 45,000 ready-made meals to nine mobile customer service centers set up for residents in towns hardest hit by the storm. More than 4,000 people from 24 states and Canada came from as far as Texas, New Mexico, Minnesota and Florida to help restore electricity in New Jersey- thousands of miles away from family and friends.
