Public Service Electric and Gas crews and contractors will depart from New Jersey early Aug. 31 to help Duke Energy respond to Hurricane Dorian, PSEG said Friday.
New Jersey’s largest utility will dispatch 114 electric line and support personnel from different locations throughout its service territory. The crews will bring about 70 vehicles, including bucket trucks, backyard-equipped trucks and pole diggers, PSEG said.
The PSE&G contingent will arrive Saturday night in the Fayetteville, N.C. area, where workers will receive their assignments.
The PSE&G employees are expected to work in Duke Energy’s service territory, including parts of Florida, for up to two weeks. They plan to work 16-hour days to repair damaged electric lines and safely restore power to those affected by the hurricane.
