Full Power Restoration Could Take up to a Week, PECO Says

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, PECO has said that it may take up to a week to restore power to the area.

It may take up to a week to fully restore power to the Bucks County area, according to PECO.

More than 850,000 customers are without power, which makes Hurricane Sandy the most damaging storm in the company's history. Of the 850,000 affected customers, 3,500 are in Northampton Township.

As of Tuesday at 6 p.m. restoration estimates for the Northampton Township area were not available. 

PECO is asking customers to call 1-800-841-4141 to report a power outage.

How do we communicate with peco that a tree knocked down the power line from our house to the main line on the road. No one answers the phone. Even if they restore power to my area we will still be without electric.

Hi, Lorraine. Because PECO is working to fix more than 850,000 outages, they probably won't answer the phone due to a huge amount of calls. But if you call the number above you can at least let them know power is out at your home. I think there is a selection for downed wires and emergencies. If you have access to the Internet, you can also report the outage here: https://www.peco.com/secure/myaccount/OutageInfo/ReportanOutage
