For Immediate Release
LANDING, N.J. - Atlantic
City Electric is closely monitoring a weather
forecast that calls for the chance of accumulating snow and wind which could
potentially affect the company's service territory early next week.
Atlantic City Electric will work
around the clock to restore any power outages that may occur, but customers
should be prepared for the possibility of service interruptions.
Snow and ice can weigh down tree limbs
and bring them into contact with power lines causing service interruptions.
Such conditions can adversely affect saturated soil and cause trees already
weakened by previous storms to fall onto power lines and equipment, leading to
power outages. Outages can also occur due to drivers skidding into utility
poles along icy and snow-covered roads.
Atlantic City Electric is in contact
with local emergency management officials.
Customers are asked to please call in any outages
and stay away from any downed wires. To report outages and downed wires, call
1-800-833-7476. Follow the prompts and ask for a call back to confirm that
power has been restored. Outages also may be reported through www.atlanticcityelectric.com or our mobile app, available for download at www.atlanticcityelectric.com/mobileapp.
