I spoke to our JCPL rep this morning to try to get some idea as to when we might see power. Here is the process that JCPL uses in restoring power. They start with the transmission lines as those lines are the backbone of the system. This storm caused damage to transmission lines and restoration work continues on those.

Next the repair substations. The Borough is served by several different substations, not just the one on Hillside Ave. The is a substation in Peapack that has issues that serves part of the town. Once the substation is up and running, then they move out to the circuits. He said part of the Borough is served by the Peapack substation and many of the circuits coming out of that substation have problems.  From the circuits, it drops to distribution lines which then serve neighborhoods. So, even if you don’t see trucks on the streets, that doesn’t mean there isn’t work being done down the line that is necessary to get us up and running.

I know some of you received a text message stating that the ETR is Tuesday. It may be, but it may not be. The Tuesday date is when the company is predicting that 95% of all of its customers will have power. There are not current ETRs for municipalities yet such as the Borough.  He provided me with the list of streets in the Borough that are without power (some are Township streets). 

If you are without power and your street is not listed and you are in the Borough, please call JCPL at 1-888-LIGHTSS
