PECO makes headway on larger outages

15 February 2010 - PECO made significant progress restoring electric service to more than 16,000 customers. The company worked through more than 300 jobs and expects to have about 3,500 customers without power by midnight.

PECO expects that the restoration effort will continue through the weekend as more than 300 of the remaining jobs each affect less than 20 customers.

More than 1,200 personnel, including PECO, contract and utility crews from near and far are working around-the-clock to repair tree and line damage and restore power across the region. The company's entire emergency response organization, including field and back office personnel, are working 12 to 16 hour shifts until power is restored for all customers.

As of 9 p.m. on Monday, February 15, about 6,000 customers remained without power.

PECO said it received nearly 230,000 customer calls in the past 2.5 days compared to a normal 10,000 per day average.
