When The Power Goes Out

This summer we have been experiencing brief but intense storms that have been impacting our power sporadically throughout the Township.  If you experience a power outage, it is important to contact PECO to document the outage. You can call (800) 841-4141 at any time day or night to report the outage.

 We would also encourage you to visit PECO’s website to see the various options available to you for reporting and tracking power outages. Simply go to www.peco.com and click “Outages”. From there you can see how to report an outage online as well as “check my outage status” or “view outage map” if you have already reported it by phone.

Again, please report all outages to PECO to help get your power restored as soon as possible.
