Linden Community

As part of our continued work, we are upgrading equipment to improve the reliability of the electric service in your community. We hear you and are working hard to keep your power on in Linden.

What We’re Doing

  • We’re investing over $31.5 million and have more than 50 improvement projects planned throughout your community over the next two years.

Why Outages are Happening

To keep our crews safe while they are working hard on power lines, our equipment is temporarily put on a more sensitive setting. When an unsafe situation occurs, the power is automatically shut off to avoid putting our crews at risk, which may result in an unexpected outage.

Rest assured that our crews work as quickly and as safely as possible to get the power back on when this happens. We expect our portion of the Hudson Street Improvement Project to be completed by mid-November, allowing us to return equipment to a normal setting.

Outages in your area have also been caused by a number of reasons, including:

Severe Weather

Severe weather - like the Derecho and extreme temperatures we experienced in June - have caused unexpected outages.

Unforeseen Circumstances

A number of outages in your area have also been caused by animals on the line, vehicle accidents and trees impacting our power lines.

Equipment Issues

Technical issues with our electrical equipment have also caused outages in our area — which is one of the reasons why you'll see crews continuing work to improve the power in your community.
