Exelon Utilities Mobilize Crews to Assist with Restoring Power to Residents in the Path of Hurricane Irma (Update)

More than 1,800 employees and contractors from Exelon’s six utilities assisting in massive power restoration effort. Exelon donates additional $100,000 for Harvey and Irma relief, bringing the total to $450,000.

​Restoration teams from Exelon’s six electric utilities – representing the nation’s largest utility company by customer count – are assisting fellow utilities and the millions of residents whose power was impacted by Hurricane Irma, now downgraded to a tropical storm. The company has mobilized more than 1,800 utility employees and contractors, including line workers, tree crews and safety personnel, who began traveling to Florida and Georgia on Friday evening. Additionally, approximately 75 customer contact center employees have been made available to respond to overflow emergency calls from the affected region.

Meanwhile, the Exelon utilities, Atlantic City Electric, BGE, ComEd, Delmarva Power, PECO and Pepco continue to monitor the storm’s path to ensure sufficient support is on-hand locally. 

“Exelon is committed to participating in the mutual assistance network to make sure that utility crews are there when help is needed,” said Chris Crane, Exelon president and CEO. “Our six utilities have the benefit of experience with severe weather as well as other best practices that can help restore power as safely and quickly as possible.”

Today, Exelon announced it will donate an additional $100,000 to relief efforts in both Houston and Florida in the coming weeks, bringing total contributions to more than $450,000 from Exelon, Exelon Foundation and its employees for both hurricanes.  The company continues to match employee donations dollar-for-dollar.  

In addition to the utility workers from Exelon restoring power following Hurricane Irma, Exelon employee volunteers are currently on the ground in Houston assisting with rebuilding efforts.
