• Atlantic City Electric Ready for Potentially Damaging Storms

    Jun 05, 2016

    MAYS LANDING, N.J. (June 5, 2016) – Atlantic City Electric (ACE)  is closely monitoring the approach of a cold front, which is expected to move through the region this afternoon and into the evening, spawning thunderstorms with heavy rain, high winds and lightning.

    These storms could damage the electric system and cause power outages. Atlantic City Electric will work around the clock to restore any power outages that may occur. In addition to internal crews, ACE has overhead line contractors available if needed.

    Should Atlantic City Electric need extra assistance, the recent merger with Exelon allows for shared resources from other nearby companies in the Exelon family, including Baltimore Gas & Electric and PECO in Philadelphia.

    While Atlantic City Electric is preparing for the storms, the company also reminds customers to be ready for the possibility of outages.

    Atlantic City Electric encourages customers to have an emergency kit, including a flashlight, battery-powered clock and radio, extra batteries, non-perishable food, manual can opener, bottled water and a list of important phone numbers. All items can be placed into a large cooler which can be used at home and is easy to grab if a person has to leave home quickly.

    Customers are asked to please report any outages and to stay away from any downed wires.​ To report outages and/or downed wires, please call 1-800-833-7476, follow the prompts, and please ask for a call back to confirm that power has been restored. Outages also may be reported through atlanticcityelectric.com or through the company’s mobile app.

    ACE also provides a “Weathering the Storm Fact Sheet” that can be downloaded from its website atlanticcityelectric.com.
