PSE&G – ELECTRIC PANEL INFORMATION
If your electric panel in your home was submerged or sustained water damage in flooding and you have power, we strongly encourage you to consult an electrician.
If you do not have power, please contact PSE&G. PSE&G is responsible for replacing or repairing the service wire coming from the street to the point of connection on the customers home along with the electric meter if it was damaged.
If there is any damage to the electrical panel and/or the wiring inside your home, please contact an electrician as this is the homeowner’s responsibility.
PSE&G – GAS SERVICE
See below regarding the process to have your gas service turned on by PSE&G:
• The Borough is NOT authorized to inspect or work on PSE&G equipment. Gas meters and regulators are the sole possession of PSE&G and can only be inspected and worked on by PSE&G representatives.
• If your appliances did not come in contact with flood waters, you can call PSE&G to turn on gas service to your dwelling.
• If any of your appliances, such as your furnace, boiler, hot water heater, etc., came in contact with flood waters, you will need to have a LICENSED PROFESSIONAL (such as a licensed plumber or HVAC technician) contracted to repair or replace the damaged equipment. After the repairs/replacement is completed, contact the Borough construction office to schedule an inspection. After the replacement/repair has passed inspection, contact PSE&G to turn on your gas service.
Please Note: You can request PSE&G come and isolate the damaged equipment (such as a furnace or hot water heater) and turn on the gas so your cooking appliances can be used.
