This is an update as of 1 p.m. on Nov. 8 from Princeton officials regarding the outages that are still affecting about 250 Princeton residents.
"Please note while we have been keeping a list of power outages on our own initiative and communicating them on a daily basis to our liaison at PSE&G to try and assist our residents who are obviously frustrated, residents should still contact PSE&G and report their outage. We are not convinced that PSE&G is aware of all outages and therefore, we encourage residents to contact PSE&G and also contact us at the Princeton Engineering Department at 921-7077 or at
email@example.com so that we can add you to our list.
PSE&G has posted a revised work plan here: pseg.com/workplan The work plan shows a projection of power restoration to all residents by Saturday.
While as of this writing, the majority of the town has received power, we are not backing down in our communication with PSE&G to get power to those that still are without. In fact, we share our residents' frustration as we have tried to get specific areas in which PSE&G projects a longer duration for power restoration so that residents can be notified so that they can make alternative plans and we can also better direct our resources. To date, PSE&G has not provided us with this information because they stated that due to the significant amount of hurricane damage throughout the state, they do not have the resources to dedicate to provide this information to each and every town. PSE&G is working hard, however, we also know that our residents that do not have power are very upset, cold and frustrated - we will continue to push."
