PECO Restores Service to 98% of Customers Affected by Storms
More than 254,000 customers restored in less than 36 hours



July 10, 2014

PECO has restored service to nearly all of the more than 260,000 customers affected by Tuesday (July 8) evening's severe thunderstorms that brought widespread damage to electric equipment.

PECO crews, contract personnel and staff have worked throughout the day and night to repair damage to the system and restore service to more than 254,000 customers in less than 36 hours.

As of 8 a.m., Thursday (July 10), approximately 5,900 customers remain without service. More than 2,800 PECO employees and contractors will continue to work around-the-clock to repair damage at individual locations to restore service to customers. Because of the extent of the damage, some customers could be without service until tomorrow (July 11).

Crews from Delaware, New Jersey, Maryland, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Ohio, Illinois, South Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Michigan and Wisconsin will join PECO crews today (July 10) in supporting the restoration effort. The company continues to have enhanced staffing in place in the company's call center, dispatch centers and in the field to respond to customer needs.

PECO understands 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.
