TRENTON, New Jersey
November 7, 2011
– Jersey Central Power & Light believes it has restored electricity to all its customers more than a week after an October snowstorm disrupted service in New Jersey.
The utility, which is a unit of FirstEnergy Corp. says crews from as far away as Wisconsin and Mississippi finished reconnecting less than 400 remaining homes and businesses by midnight.
However, any JCP&L customers who don't have power should call 888-544-4877.
JCP&L says it was the largest storm restoration effort in the company's history.
More than 300,000 of the utility's 1.1 million customers lost service during the storm.
Crews will remain on the job to make permanent any temporary repairs.
