More than 60 Percent of Customers; Utility exercising balanced approach to restoring service

Out-of-state utility workers from fifteen states and Canada are providing mutual assistance

BALTIMORE, July 2, 2012 -- Baltimore Gas and Electric Company (BGE) today announced that as of 7 a.m., it has restored service to 63 percent of its customers, or nearly 410,000, who lost power since Friday evening's damaging weather system. BGE expects restoration activities to continue into the coming weekend.

More than 2,600 utility workers, including more than 1,400 BGE personnel and nearly 1,200 out-of-state utility workers, are either actively restoring power, or are en route to central Maryland. The out-of-state crews are coming from as far away as Canada (Quebec), New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Michigan, Massachusetts, and Florida. BGE's sister utility, PECO, an Exelon Company based in Philadelphia, is also providing support to the company's restoration effort. Customers are reminded to stay informed of restoration progress via bge.com, Twitter, Facebook and Flickr.
