Local Utility Crews Work to Restore Power in Florida

Local Utility Crews Work to Restore Power in Florida”

More than 128 Atlantic City Electric workers have headed south to help restore power lost in Hurricane Irma, the company said Sunday.

The 100-person storm team will depart Tuesday morning.

Hurricane Irma swept through most of Florida this weekend, causing downed trees, power lines and sending thousands into shelters before weakening into a tropical storm.

They say it could be weeks until power is fully restored and that's why the extra help will be much appreciated. "As part of Exelon, BGE and its sister utilities represent one of the largest contingents of resources being deployed to help restore power to customers affected by Hurricane Irma".

At this time, EPE does not know how long assistance will be needed.

Once they arrive, the crew members will be attached to the local utility. In the past, FirstEnergy and its employees have been honored by the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) with its "Emergency Assistance Award" for the mutual assistance the company has provided during winter and summer storms. "Our crews will follow direction. As part of this partnership, Gulf Power line crews provide assistance to other utilities when service to their customers is interrupted due to severe weather, and have traveled as far away as NY to assist with restoration following Superstorm Sandy", said Rogers.
