Power Update: 87% Restored; 40,495 to Go

Utility companies predict that most or all of Bucks County will be restored to power by midnight Sunday.

On Saturday, local utility companies restored power to more than 50,000 customers, but they still have more than 40,000 to go.

In a press release Saturday night, PECO reported that 30,000 customers remained without power in Bucks County. PPL had 5,621 and Met-Ed stated it had 4,874 customers still in the dark.

Are you one of the last 40,000? How have you been coping?

In Bucks County, Bristol, Lower Makefield, Upper Makefield, Solebury townships and New Hope were the hardest hit. PECO expects most of the remaining customers to have service restored by Sunday midnight

“I want to thank our customers for their patience and understanding as we continue to focus on safely restoring service across the region,” said Craig Adams, PECO President and CEO.  “We know it is hard to be without electric, especially for several days. I want to assure our customers that we will not stop until every last customer is restored.”


PECO set up customer information centers in the region where customers can speak with a PECO representative regarding their outage:

Sunday, Nov. 4, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

  • New Hope Solebury High School, 183 West Bridge Street, New Hope, PA
  • Best Buy, 1130 Easton Rd., Willow Grove, PA.
  • Upper Makefield Fire House, 1221 Taylorsville Rd., Washington Crossing, PA

PECO encourages customers to contact the company at 1-800-841-4141 throughout the day for the most updated information regarding their outage.

Today I visited lake Nockamixon. The marina area is now a staging area for out of state power Linemen.The lake is beautiful,but they are not living the good life.Think 16 hour days out in the cool weather,living in campers or bad motels and no home cooked meals.

@ E.Morton Obviously you didn't read my post…. I have been WITHOUT power for a week as many of these people on this comment BLOG. I have also been without water since I have a well that requires electricity. I don't have a warm couch to sit on. But I am making the most of it. I think everyone just needs to be patient and help eachother. Read before you speak…..

The one thing that bothered me thru this power outing was, street rd and any crossroad was very dangerous to deal with, and this being a state emergency route road to put a stop sign at these intersections was a joke! i cant believe no one wasnt injured during this event!! every township had generators working their lights but ours and not even one cop in site, whats up with that, whos in charge of our emergency readyness?

The twp manager is the emergency management coordinator. Start with him.

Sometimes its the neighbors at fault. My neighborhood has homeowners that refuse to cut down trees around power lines. They are the ones at fault for letting their trees grow and then damage the lines. Peco cant do everything
