Crews from Con Edison and Orange & Rockland (O&R) Utilities deployed to California before dawn this morning to help restore power to customers of Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E).

Following safety training with PG&E, the 20 Con Edison and O&R electric line workers and support personnel will help conduct safety patrols and line inspections. The inspections will ensure that it is safe to re-energize the lines once the weather conditions contributing to wildfires subside.

Based in Sacramento, the Con Edison and O&R personnel will remain to assist PG&E for as long as needed.

The willingness, even the eagerness, of utilities to send crews and workers to help out their fellow energy providers in need is one of the most underrated but inspiring aspects of this industry. Thanks to all of those who contribute their time and efforts!
