Following more than a week’s worth of around-the-clock restoration efforts to restore the 850,000 customers who were without power following Hurricane Sandy, crews are standing by ready to address any impacts from the approaching nor’easter.
“We want to thank our customers for their patience as we worked to clean up the damage from this historic storm,” said PECO President and CEO Craig Adams. “I’d also like to thank our tireless crews, contractors, customer service representatives, and all other employees, who helped to safely restore power to our customers. We also thank the many local and state officials who helped us coordinate our restoration efforts throughout the storm. We’re ready for today’s nor’easter, and ask our customers to be ready too.”
PECO reminds customers to stay safe during the storm. With the region just recovering from Hurricane Sandy, customers may encounter tree damage and downed power lines. Customers should always assume that downed lines and equipment are energized and extremely dangerous. Always assume PECO’s equipment is energized – even if there is an outage in your neighborhood. Report these dangerous conditions to PECO immediately at 1-800-841-4141.
Working 12- to 16-hour shifts, more than 4,700 PECO employees, contractors and utility workers (from as far away as Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Maryland, Florida and from PECO’s sister utilities—Chicago-based ComEd and Baltimore-based BGE) worked tirelessly to repair the severe damage caused by Sandy. More than 10 states along the East Coast suffered damage from Sandy, resulting in power interruptions for more than 9.6 million customers in the Northeast and locally to more than 850,000 PECO customers – making Sandy the largest and worst storm in company history.More than 1,000 contractors and utility workers from throughout the country remain at the ready to support PECO employees and crews to help restore service to any customers impacted by today’s nor’easter.
