The last group of PG&E employees who traveled to New York to help restore power in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy was set to return to California Friday, according to utility officials.
PG&E sent around 250 employees, including overhead and underground maintenance and construction crews, electric first responders and damage assessment personnel, as well as logistical support and field safety personnel, officials said.
The first group of around 150 employees returned on Wednesday after working to help Con Edison in Queens, Brooklyn and Manhattan.
The group of around 100 employees returning Friday spent the past two weeks restoring power to Long Island Power Authority customers by replacing and repairing wires and transformers and cutting and pruning fallen trees.
