For Immediate Release
MAYS LANDING, N.J. (March 25, 2018) – Atlantic City Electric restored power Sunday morning to all customers who lost electric service in the wake of Winter Storm Toby. Of the more than 115,000 power outages that occurred, the vast majority of customers were restored in just over 36 hours. Atlantic City Electric crews and field personnel, from as far as Illinois and Canada, worked around the clock until the final customers were restored.
Winter Storm Toby's heavy, wet snow, ice, and strong winds toppled trees, tree limbs, downed power lines and damaged electric equipment, making it challenging for crews to restore power safely and quickly.
"We can't thank our customers enough for their patience and understanding as our crews worked to restore their service after this third potent March nor'easter," said Vince Maione, Atlantic City Electric region president. "Special thanks also to our emergency responders, state and local elected officials, and other stakeholders who provided important support throughout this extreme weather event."
More than 2,200 personnel from Atlantic City Electric's sister utilities Delmarva Power, Pepco, BGE, ComEd, and PECO, along with resources from PSE&G and JCP&L, and contractors from near and far, worked alongside Atlantic City Electric and local contractors to restore service to customers.
If customers are still experiencing any issues related to their electric service as a result of the storm, they should contact Atlantic City Electric immediately at 1-800-833-7476.
