San Diego Gas & Electric is shipping more than 20 pieces of equipment to the east coast Tuesday to be used by approximately 40 SDG&E employees who will be assisting New York City utility Con Edison in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Sandy. Crews will be departing on Friday, the utility company said in a press release.
The equipment is being shipped cross-country via flatbed truck. Among the equipment being sent includes mechanized line trucks, aerial/bucket trucks, light duty bucket trucks, supervisor trucks and field mechanic trucks.
The temporary loan of mutual assistance crews will not hamper SDG&E’s ability to meet its customers’ needs.
