Con Edison to Customers: We're More Than Halfway There
Facilitated Road Clearing and Provided Support to Critical Customers
In just 36 hours, Con Edison crews reached the halfway mark in restorations following Isaias’ punishing winds and rain that brought down thousands of trees, 78 poles and other equipment, causing over 580 road closures and approximately 300,000 customer outages.
At 7 a.m. today, a fresh shift of Con Edison employees – numbering more than 1,000, including 460 utility contractors and mutual aid workers - will continue the forward momentum of assessing damage, providing site safety, restoring power, and clearing trees and downed wires.
Power has been restored to more than 85 percent of affected customers in Brooklyn and 74 percent of affected customers in Staten Island. Also restored are 10,495 customers in the Bronx and 45,487 in hardest hit Westchester County. Crews are continuing to work with municipalities to remove downed wires from fallen trees to facilitate the opening of blocked roads.
“This storm’s impact to the tri-state area was historic,” said Matthew Ketschke, Con Edison senior vice president of Customer Energy Solutions. “We are making significant progress as we work around the clock to restore power. New Yorkers are depending on us.”
