For Immediate Release
Pepco Maintains Additional Crews Throughout the Weekend
All available crews will continue to work this weekend restoring electric service to Pepco customers. With safety as a primary concern during this spell of hot weather, crews are working around the clock in rotating shifts to return power to the remaining customers affected by the recent storms. The focus primarily is on the time consuming task of restoring power to small groups and individual customers. While the vast majority of our customers already have been restored, we expect most of the remaining customers will be restored by the end of the weekend. If customers are still without power, Pepco asks them to call the outage line at 1-877-737-2662 to report the outage.
Because the intense heat and humidity may last for several days, customers who are still without power should consider alternate arrangements, particularly for those with special needs, the elderly or very young children.
Until power is restored, please remember:
Pepco, a subsidiary of Pepco Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: POM), delivers safe, reliable and affordable electric service to more than 750,000 customers in Maryland and the District of Columbia.
