Friday, March 2, a powerful Nor’easter caused more than 435,000 power outages in the State. Baltimore Gas and Electric (a MACo Gold Corporate Partner) crews worked to restore power to over 395,000 by Sunday, March 4. Approximately 9,000 were still without power on Tuesday, March 6.

Winds from the Nor’easter exceeded 70 miles-per-hour for over 48 hours in addition to damaged trees and power equipment.

From the March 4 Press Release:

We understand the difficulties our customers are facing and are working to safely restore power as quickly as possible.

– Rodney Oddoye, vice president of customer operations and chief customer officer for BGE

From the March 6 Press Release:

We have flooded the region with our technicians and more than 950 line workers from outside the storm’s path to finish the job of restoring power to all of our customers. As we deploy all available resources from BGE and the assistance crews from across the country to bring power back safely to the remaining customers affected by last week’s winds, we are also keeping a close eye on the forecast to ensure that we can respond to any issues new weather may bring.

– Rodney Oddoye, vice president of customer operations and chief customer officer for BGE

BGE Crews worked around-the-clock shifts to restore service quickly and received aid from other states. Crews from a sister company in Illinois and utilities from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, Pennsylvania, Texas, and even Canada assisted in the restoration.
