Pepco Statement on Restoring Service for All Customers in Montgomery County, Maryland

​WASHINGTON, DC. (Nov. 28, 2022) —

Pepco is pleased to have successfully assisted Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services and other local emergency personnel with the effort to rescue the individuals who were stranded in the airplane in Montgomery County. As of 11:58 p.m., Pepco also has restored electric service for all customers impacted by incident. The company is updating its online outage map to reflect the latest system status. Pepco continues its efforts working with local emergency services personnel at the site. The company will further stabilize the energy infrastructure at the scene and perform a full assessment of damage before planning and beginning repairs. It is too early to determine how long that assessment and repair process will take.

Due to the redundancy that Pepco builds into the local energy grid, the company was able to identify a path to restore service for all customers even while the electric lines impacted by this incident were deenergized.
