Dear Community & Public Safety Partner:
As we transition to the fall and winter months, Delmarva Power
is prepared for major weather events such as Nor’easters,
significant snowfalls and icing conditions that can cause service
interruptions. Since 2012, Delmarva Power has invested $330 million
to upgrade its Maryland electric distribution system, producing
a 51 percent drop in the number of outages and a 69 percent increase
in the speed in which outages are restored.
Along with infrastructure improvements, we continue to exercise
and improve our planned and strategic response to restore service
when and if an event does occur by:
• Prioritizing the safety of our employees and the public
above all else.
• Providing customers with updated information via our website
and mobile applications.
• Coordinating additional resources, as needed, to restore
service and respond to emergencies.
• Maintaining an adequate supply of essential equipment,
such as poles, wires and transformers.
• Staying in contact with other utilities to quickly arrange
for mutual assistance in case of a natural disaster.
• Working with local governments, public safety personnel
and first responders through our Emergency Services Partnership
Program to respond safely and decisively to emergencies.
• Participating in emergency preparedness drills on a regular
