Gov. Chris Christie reported yesterday that 2.6 million utility customers were without power as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
The number represented a full 1 million more customers than lost power during Irene.
Here’s a quick look today at where things are at with PSE&G and JCP&L:
- Both companies are working to restore power to about 1.85 million customers.
- JCP&L restored power to roughly 150,000 customers. About 950,000 are still without power.
- PSE&G restored power to about 30 percent of the 1.5 million people that were knocked off the grid. Currently, they’re working to restore power to about 900,000 customers.
