GHOSTED: Why are there no PSEG trucks anywhere in my town yet?

Posted

All the kids in my daughter's fifth grade class had some fun pre-storm ghosting. They would leave candy at the door but never be at the door - just like a ghost.

PSEG is also ghosting us. But instead of candy being left at our door we are left with freezing cold homes; children shivering in their beds; no power and worst of all: NO INFORMATION.

PSEG: What happened to all those workers you had sent up here before the storm?

Where are they guys? They are NOT on our streets in West Caldwell or North Caldwell or Caldwell or Essex Fells or Roseland.

I have not seen ONE TRUCK SINCE TUESDAY AM.

I cannot speak for Montclair - since I can only drive in my towns closest to me.

But we have GIANT TREES blocking our main streets here and LIVE DANGEROUS WIRES hanging from them.

WHERE ARE YOUR WORKS PSEG? HERE IS WHAT YOU TOLD US IN WRITING:

Ralph LaRossa, PSE&G president, said, “PSE&G will be working around the clock to assess the damage and restore service. Given the destructive nature of this storm, however, some customers may be without service for seven or more days. Our urban centers were especially hard hit as a result of substation flooding. One of our first priorities is to get those stations back in service.”

-- Crews helping in the restoration efforts have come from Texas, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Florida, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Georgia and New Jersey, as well as Canada.

NO ONE IS HERE ON THE GROUND. YOUR WEBSITE HAS ZERO INFORMATION. YOU ARE NOT DOING YOUR JOB.

I am not complaining about the difficulty of your manpower working during the storm - THERE IS NO ONE HERE ON THE GROUND NO ONE.

Since your media department will only say "We cannot tell you power outages or work by town" and your online Map is INVISIBLE here is my question:

How much trouble will you be in after the storm?

You have not communicated AT ALL. You have not had TRUCKS ON THE GROUND.

There are NO WORKERS ANYWHERE IN MY 5 TOWNS and who knows where else.

No matter how bad it is we want and deserve answers.

Shame on you.

Very responsible journalism. I can listen to my neighbors whine. It's called investigative journalism - your job to get us this info. Checking out PSEG's website doesn't cut it. Most of us have more info regarding damage to our substation in Newark than (apparently) you do.
