• Atlantic City Electric Ready for Potentially Damaging Storms

    Jun 21, 2016

    MAYS LANDING, N.J. (June 21, 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, sparking the potential for severe thunderstorms capable of producing 60 mph wind gusts, hailstones, lightning strikes and a small chance for an isolated tornado.

    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 and tree-trimming personnel available if needed to assist in any restoration effort.

    Should Atlantic City Electric need extra assistance, the company could potentially draw upon resources from our family of companies including those from Baltimore Gas & Electric, PECO in Philadelphia and ComEd in Chicago.

    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.
