With nearly 85 percent of Wyckoff without power and temperatures expected to dip into the 30s tonight, PSE&G still has no timeline for restoring service to more than 2,000 customers, according to a work schedule released by the governor's office Saturday.
Gov. Chris Christie released the restoration plans for New Jersey's three primary power companies Saturday in an effort to provide New Jerseyans greater transparency and certainty about the progress of restoration in their towns.
“While progress has been made in restoring power to many businesses, households, and critical infrastructure in the aftermath of Sandy, there are still over 1.25 million customers without power," Christie said in a statement. "So many New Jerseyans have demonstrated significant patience and resilience through the storm and this initial recovery period, and it is our obligation to get them back online and with the certainty of a timeline they can reliably plan their lives around in the coming days.”
The restoration plans, provided by PSE&G, Jersey Central Power and Light and Atlantic City Electric, give a town-by-town breakdown of the number of customers serviced, the number of customers without power and a restoration timetable for the next three days.
Wyckoff has 84.3 percent of its 2,809 PSE&G customers still without power.

A number of Wyckoff streets — Merrywood Avenue, Hickory Hill Road, Briarwood Drive, and parts of Sicomac Avenue — came online Thursday evening. One Hickory Hill Road resident confirmed that she was a PSE&G customer.
Boulder Run, the Christian Health Care Center and a number of township residences are serviced by Rockland Electric, a subsidiary of Orange & Rockland.
Rockland Electric's restoration timetable was not included in the governor's release.
