The utility says that central New Jersey customers should have their lights back on by Sunday, but those in northern New Jersey may not see power restored until Wednesday night, a full week after the snowstorm.

PSEG says a total of 550 trucks and crews equipped with 580 tree trimmers are on the move. They say power for their customers should be back on by Saturday or Sunday night at the latest.
