About 1,500 In Lakewood With No Electricity

About 1,500 homes in Lakewood are without electricity this afternoon, according to JCP&L. Some areas affected are Glen Avenue, Central Avenue and the area of Westgate. About 200 homes in Jackson have no power, and about 100 in Howell are out as well.

The blackout was caused by work being done on the substation, Police say.

Power is expected to be restored by 7PM, as per JCP&L.

  1. Ridiculous! This Township can’t get their act together. It’s 92 degrees outside & they shut off power in the ‘substation’. ENOUGH with handling this township as a child would!

  2. to #1 these things happen. Im sure a transformer or substation blew and they will get it on as soon as possible. Its obviously a huge inconvenience for everyone without power, but It is in JCPL’s best interest to get it back up as soon as possible, so im sure they will

  3. The power is back on in west gate however this is an ongoing issue with JCP&L they don’t care about us, it’s becoming a bad habbit on their behalf we must go and protest to our counsel members and the NJ Board of Public Utilities and voice our complaints, on average we get shut down a week out of the year to power outages!!!!!!!

  4. Chaim Yankel, its called coordination. Kapish? In my younger years I resided in a different community & anytime there was a Gas, Electric, etc. issue, the Township was notified & they notify the citizens. They had Township meetings with said companies, to ensure that the citizens were kept abreast during outages. In Lakewood Township…nada!

  5. MAYBE we can show Hashem that we appreciate light-& everything else-so we don’t need these reminders, to show us the difference between dark & light.

  6. it was a wire down on hope chapel rd in jackson that caused the problem, not a substation issue, this is what i was told by some one who knows.

  7. It is going to be a long, hot summer.

    Let us thank God for all of the conveniences of modern life when the utilities are on, and at the same time, demand that JCP&L improve the infrastructure to minimize the outages.

    There must be a better way to keep the power flowing. Perhaps backup systems need to be examined.
