Reminder: PUC Hearing on Ice Storm This Week

The PUC is looking to hear how well electric utility companies communicated with customers in the aftermath of the storm.

Some were without power for days following February's ice storm.

Pennsylvania's Public Utility Commission will hold a hearing in Tredyffrin Township this week to discuss the response to the power outages following February's ice storm.

Hundreds of thousands of people were without power for days following the storm, which caused the largest winter outages in PECO history.

The PUC is looking for feedback during the hearing, and specifically wants to know how well your utility company communicated during the storm, and whether you were provided accurate information on when your power would be restored.

The hearing will be 6:30 p.m. March 26 in Keene Hall of the Tredyffrin Township Building, 1100 DuPortail Road in Berwyn.

With the amount of trees and wires down, as an Easttown resident, I feel that PECO did a great job in getting 80% of Chester County up and running in 4-5 days. Service workers were here from as far as Canada and from the south. There aren't enough tree surgeons or electrical repair service people to accomplish this huge undertaking in less than that time. THANK YOU.

Getting things restored: good, though it's surprising it took so much longer than Sandy. What does irk me bigtime was the constant "power will be restored today" from their systems. That made it impossible for me to manage things with my family and my father-in-law, who had to stay behind in a hotel while the rest of us went on a business trip to California. We also stayed in the house longer than I would have had they been clear about the amount of damage and likely long restoration times.
