PSE&G Prepares for Remnants of Hurricane Ian

Oct. 1, 2022
PSE&G is committed to working safely to restore potential power outages and provide service.

PSE&G is ready for the remnants of Hurricane Ian, forecast to bring rain and potentially isolated thunderstorms and gusty winds to the service area from Sept. 30 through Oct. 3. Throughout this week, employees have been performing system checks and prepping for potential outages. PSE&G has sent 48 contractors to help Florida, parts of which were hit by the Category 4 hurricane.

“Our thoughts remain with the people of Florida and surrounding states and we’re glad that the forecast here in New Jersey has allowed us to send skilled contractors to help,” said Jack Bridges, vice president, Electric Operations. “Forecasts predict Ian weakening substantially before moving to our area yet we’re closely monitoring the weather, particularly for southern New Jersey. We are staffed and ready to respond to issues as they arise. We encourage PSE&G customers to prepare for the storm as well.”

PSE&G has additional personnel ready to respond, and is performing system and logistics checks to ensure the availability of critical materials, fuel and other supplies. PSE&G prepares year-round for extreme weather to maintain reliable service for our customers. Ten years after Superstorm Sandy raged across the East Coast, PSE&G continues to work to protect customers’ utility service from the damaging impact of extreme weather by strengthening and upgrading its infrastructure.
