At Atlantic City Electric, we take the responsibility of providing our customers with safe, reliable and affordable energy service very seriously. This includes being prepared for whatever Mother Nature might bring us at any time of the year.  We encourage others, including our customers, to be prepared as well.  Please help us bring this important information into your community by sharing these steps that can be taken to prepare for summer storms.

  • Assemble an emergency storm kit.
  • Prepare a plan for what to do during a power outage or summer storm.
  • Confirm Atlantic City Electric has your current phone number in the “My Alerts and Notifications” section of the website: atlanticcityelectric.com/MyAccount.

We monitor local weather reports regularly and if severe storms are forecasted to hit, we follow the advice of local emergency management officials.  We follow a strategic response plan to restore service, addressing live wires or potentially life-threatening situations first, followed by high-voltage transmission lines and equipment, which restore service to the largest number of affected customers.  We also prioritize public health and safety facilities, like hospitals, police and fire stations and water treatment plants and work to restore service in your community safely and as quickly as possible.  To learn more about our restoration process, visit atlanticcityelectric.com/Restoration.

Customers are asked to immediately report a downed wire or service issue by calling 1-800-833-7476, visiting atlanticcityelectric.com or through our mobile app. Atlantic City Electric customers can also text “Out” to “20661”. Customers must first text “ADD OUTAGE” to “20661” to sign up for this service.

We also recognize our responsibility to serve customers by working to keep bills as low as possible and to continue to help our customers through these difficult times.  We understand many of our customers are facing economic challenges and are also dealing with the impact of inflation and rising prices for the products and services they are using each day.  We are committed to keeping every customer connected with extended payment arrangements and working to help them secure important energy assistance.  We care about our customers and have a wide range of payment options we offer based on their individual account and household income.  Many of these arrangements can be made quickly and easily by calling 800-642-3780 or by visiting our website at atlanticcictyelectric.com/EnergyAssistance.

We also continue to help our customers realize the benefits of energy efficiency, educating customers on the important tips and programs available to help them reduce their energy usage and help them save money. Many of these no-cost or low-cost tips and programs can help save customers 10-20 percent on their monthly bill.  Customers can learn more by visiting atlanticcityelectric.com/Save.
