PECO Says Most Customers' Power Restored

Most of the remainder expected to be restored by Sunday night; 'isolated' customers may need to wait longer

Power has been restored to more than 87 percent of PECO's customers in Montgomery and Bucks counties, the utility said late Saturday afternoon.

About 15,000 customers remained without power in Montgomery County, PECO said. It hopes to have most of the remaining customers back in service by midnight on Sunday night. Customers "in the most damaged and isolated areas" may not get service back until later in the week, the company said.

Patch was at the scene as power was restored to one neighborhood in the Eagleville section of Lower Providence Township on Saturday evening.

Abington, Cheltenham, Upper Moreland, Lower Merion, and Plymouth townships were named by PECO as the areas that remained most severely impacted by power outages.

“I want to thank our customers for their patience and understanding as we continue to focus on safely restoring service across the region,” said Craig Adams, PECO President and CEO, in a statement sent to media outlets.  “We know it is hard to be without electric, especially for several days. I want to assure our customers that we will not stop until every last customer is restored.”

A PECO customer information center will be open at the Best Buy location at 1130 Easton Road in Willow Grove from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Customers may visit the center to speak with a PECO representative about their outage.
