PECO works to restore electric service after summer storm

Sponsored by

PECO has restored electric service to nearly all of the more than 155,000 customers left without electric service by Thursday’s severe thunderstorm.

Working throughout the holiday, PECO crews, contract personnel and support from utilities from Pittsburgh, Connecticut and Massachusetts, as well as crews from PECO’s sister utility in Baltimore, have restored service to more than 150,000 customers in less than 36 hours.

As of 7 a.m. Saturday, about 3,500 customers remain without service due to the storm. The company expects to have all customers restored today.

Additional crews from utilities in Ohio and Virginia will join the effort to help restore service to customers today. The company also has enhanced staffing in place in the company’s call center, dispatch centers and in the field to respond to customer needs.

Crews have been working around-the-clock to safely restore service to all customers impacted by the storm. The company’s emergency response organization remains activated and all available personnel are responding to restore service as safely and quickly as possible.

We understand that customers are inconvenienced when they are without service, and crews will continue to work to safely restore service as quickly as possible. PECO urges customers to stay safe and always stay away from any storm damaged electrical equipment, especially downed power lines and tree limbs that may come into contact with power lines.
