Atlantic City Electric is continuing to apply maximum resources to restore service to customers impacted by Hurricane Sandy. The company expects to have restored service to all mainland customers able to safely accept electric power by midnight Friday, with the exception of select communities in eastern Atlantic and Ocean counties that suffered far more extensive infrastructure damage.
At the height of the storm, about 220,000 customers were without service. Atlantic City Electric has resolved about two-thirds of these. Currently, there are about 75,000 customers without power: 31,500 on the mainland and 43,000 in barrier island communities.
