JCP&L Says Parsippany Restorations Will Go into Next Week

Right now, the utility says 30 percent of its local customers remain without electricity.

A new report from Jersey Central Power and Light indicates that power restoration in Parsippany will take through at least next week to complete.

According to the report, a majority of its Parsippany customers have had their electricity restored—but 30 percent of township businesses and residences are still without power.

In his Monday afternoon press release, Mayor James Barberio noted that the work the utility is doing "is very labor intensive and is slow moving, but in order for power to be restored to homes, [the] lines going into the neighborhoods must be fixed first."

The mayor added that once power is restored to neighborhoods, it does not mean that power will be restored to specific individual homes or streets.

"If there are smaller lines down in your area, they have to be addressed by crews once they are able to work in your specific neighborhood," the mayor's release said. "We are hoping to see crews on residential streets soon."

The JCP&L's latest outage map showed approximately 5,997 homes and businesses in town are still without power as of 4 p.m. Monday.

Those who find themselves without power are encouraged to call JCP&L directly at 888-544-4877. 

The mayor's press release reminded residents to use caution when driving and to avoid any downed wires, which could be live.

I'm sorry...everyone needs to stop blaming the Mayor and local officials. Unless they climb up a pole and hook up power, they are pretty much as helpless as everyone else. It's crazy cold, and at 9 days, everyone is out of their mind over this..I get it...I have no power either. But I am trying to keep it in perspective because these people working the lines are doing what they are told. Don't get mad at the people who have no control over it...you're wasting your energy...get mad at the people at JCP&L who obviously have no idea what they are doing.

Please call JCP and L customer service # 1-800-662-3115 or 888-544-4877 everyday! For Hazardous situations like down Power lines and multiple streetlight problems and power outages. Call customer service every day and let them know it is very important they fix this situation as it is a Safety issue now. It is best to call at 8AM as they are less busy at this time. I called today and they are hoping to have everybody up in Parsippany by SAT. They should be ashamed for keeping us in the dark for so long. They should not send us a bill for this whole month or offer us a deep discount. We are losing a lot of money on gas for the generator, going out to eat everyday, hotel stays. This is a natural disaster and I understand but they are the Power experts and they should have a plan in place to keep us all safe. This is a major inconvenience. We are high paying tax customers and we do not deserve to be treated like this. Our power should have been restored long time ago. I wonder what Mayor James Barberio could do to help us. HIS # is 973-263-4297 or 973-263-4262 or e-mail his office at partroymayorsoffice@parsippany.net. Call him too and ask him.
