A.C. Electric restores power to all customers affected by the storm

    Atlantic City Electric, an Exelon company, announced on Sunday it has restored power to more than 200,000 customers who had been affected by Tropical Storm Isaias.

    Just 14 customers are expected to be restored by Monday morning, the Mays Landing-based energy provider said.

    “Tropical Storm Isaias was one of the most devastating storms in our company’s history, and the added affects of subsequent storms, along with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, made this restoration effort even more challenging,” Gary Stockbridge, Atlantic City Electric region president, said. “We want to express our sincere appreciation to our customers, especially those in the most heavily damaged areas, for their patience and understanding as we worked around the clock to restore their service.”

    The company said more than 1,700 personnel have been working to repair the storm’s damage. Crews were able to restore 90% of customers impacted within 36 hours and 95% within just 48 hours.

    “I also want to thank the thousands of employees at Atlantic City Electric, our local contractors, the personnel from our sister companies, BGE, ComEd and Pepco, and the mutual assistance we received from across the country and from Canada for their tireless contributions to this incredible effort. This was one of the largest teams we have ever mobilized for a weather event. Your teamwork, selflessness and commitment to our customers in challenging conditions have been inspiring,” Stockbridge said.
