I hope there’s no heat related injury and the power gets back on. BUT this is good for “the environment” and “global warming”. We the eco-conscious organic-veggie eating citizens of Newtown call on PECO to wait a week and NOT restore power. We want to reduce our carbon footprint.

What is it with PECO? They are becoming less and less dependable. They are as bad as a Third World utility company. We lose power 4-5 times per year; whenever there are 2 snowflakes, 1 bolt of lightning or winds over 10 MPH.

I'd like to know what the problem is. We know the power is out. Now PECO, tell us why it keeps going out.

Yes, what caused the power outages and what is being done to correct the issue? Now I have to get someone to come and recalibrate my oven/stove.
