Due to the magnitude of the storm, the company expects the restoration effort to extend over multiple days. Just as Pepco is preparing for Hurricane Irene, we strongly urge you to prepare for the possibility of power outages.
Storm Center Update
Pepco has nearly 1,000 personnel dedicated to restoration, some from as far away as Ohio and Pennsylvania.
We continue to request mutual assistance from our utility partners.
As soon as safely possible, damage assessors will be surveying the storm's impact. The company will issue an estimated restoration time for bringing power back up to all customers. These estimates will be refined as restoration work progresses.
If your power goes out, call 1-877-737-2662 and take advantage of the automated reporting system. Do not assume your neighbor has called.
