Con Ed Continues Restoration Efforts in Westchester

The company continues to say most power will be restored in the county by the end of next weekend.

Con Edison has continued its power restoration efforts in Westchester County over the weekend, though the company still maintains the approximately 75,000 still without power may not have it restored until one week from today.

"County wide, approximately 140,000 customers had their service restored," the company said in a statement Sunday night. "Con Edison expects to have the vast majority of those impacted by the storm restored by next weekend."

While the lights have been out in many neighborhoods for close to one week, some residents said they have indeed seen Con Edison vehicles working nearby.

"Our entire neighborhood in North White Plains got power around 8 p.m. last night (McBride, Benedict, etc)," Christian commented on Patch Sunday morning. "Lots of Con Ed folks in the neighborhood around that time...finally!

In Pleasantville, Mayor Peter Scherer shared today, "We saw some progress from Con Ed today, with many residents in the Skytop/Summit neighborhood brought back in the very early morning."

Officials noted today that electricity was restored to both the New Rochelle and Rockland campuses of Iona College, including all Westchester residence halls.

Con Edison said in its statement this evening that more than 2,000 crews from outside the company are now in the Westchester County/New York City area assisting with restoration efforts.

"Since Friday, Con Edison has been building two new base camps in FDR State Park in Yorktown and at the Queens Hall of Science to host the out-of-town crews," the statement said.

Here's a snapshot of Con Edison's latest outage figures for Westchester County customers:

I see interesting pattern, top percentage wise towns without electricity. New Castle 65%, Scarsdale 59%, north castle 55%, Briarcliff 53% Bedford 53% Rye 49%. Looks like expensive towns are mostly out. Is anybody has explanation? Is it due to ancient lines, or mismanagement or else?

Con Ed should be working 24/7 to restore anyone left who is out of power, its just mismanagement of manpower, we have seen no Con ed trucks in the area , saw a tree truck working last night on Lookout st in Mohegan Lake , power out over a week now , but no one working this morning , street is blocked , 25 degrees and 40 inside, and another storm coming , I find it amazing that we live in one of the highest taxed counties in the US and this is happening , its time to get out , so not worth it !!!

Why are we still using overhead lines? Its preposterous. My relatives visting from Europe asked why we still had telegraph poles on the street. It would be a one-time cost to bury them and the compsanies should get a tax break so they can't complain. Do it already.

When I saw the trucks from a company in Mississippi I knew the power would be restored and sure enough four hours later it was, last big outage it was a group from Kentucky who fixed it. Of course our over charging company Con Ed was no where to be seen. Anyone want to bet the next thing Con Ed will be doing is asking for a rate increase to pay for all the overtime they paid to restore power, which certainly was not my community.

I don't understand how anyone could defend ConEd under the circumstances. They were supposed to have learned from their past mistakes, plus they had plenty of time to prepare for Sandy. Thank God for the out of state crews that have come to the rescue. That is, those that weren't turned away by union guys.
