[VIDEO CHAT WITH SUPERVISOR] If you’ve passed the Blue Claws Stadium over the last two days, you may have noticed the large amount of trucks, tents, trailers and other equipment set up in the parking lot.
That equipment, is a part of the massive JCP&L dispatch center coordinating the restoration efforts for Lakewood, Regional Operations Center of Richmond, Virginia Jeff Hutchinson says.
TLS spoke with Jeff, getting a brief rundown of how the system operates and what the site contains. (See video).
Hutchinson says the crews and approximately 150 vehicles came into Lakewood on Friday, as soon as they were done repairing outages in Richmond, Virginia.
Hutchinson says nearly every truck is out on the road working, though he could not provide any details as to how much longer the repair process could take.
Local officials though tell TLS that additional electric companies are being brought in today in an effort to expedite the repair process.
By late Sunday night, about half of JCP&L’s Lakewood customers were restored. TLS.
The guys coming in from other states are making triple overtime at over $125 an hour including all travel and sleep time, BUT THEY ARE WORTH EVERY PENNY!
no such pay scale for any electric worker in the state( 3x)stop giving out Bad information.
These men and women left their families and home to come a save us, a little gratitude please…THANK YOU TO ALL THE LINE REPAIR PERSONS THAT CAME FROM OUT OF STATE TO HELP US!!! And what they get paid is none of anyone’s business but theirs.
I agree with #3.. We can never thank these people enough… May they all be blessed..
