Pepco Files Storm Outage Report
On July 30, Pepco filed its storm outage report with the Maryland Public Service Commission. The report outlines the company’s response before and after the June 29 derecho. The report includes data and photos documenting the damage sustained and the company’s restoration efforts .
According to the report: “Pepco restored power as quickly as possible, particularly given the sheer number of outages. Because of the extensive damage and obstruction caused by fallen trees
and limbs, Pepco sustained significant damage to the distribution system serving small pockets of customers in localized areas, which required significant resources to restore service. Additionally, tree related outages continued to accumulate well after the storm left the area due to damaged trees and limbs that continued to fall.”
