Pepco has power grid issues in Westbard area
Last night, the most recent outage occurred just after 10:00 PM, and affected parts of the Sumner, Springfield and Glen Mar Park neighborhoods. The outage lasted about 10 minutes in some places, and required people to - yet again - reset all clocks, and tally up the losses in damaged appliances and devices. Others were still without power an hour later, with an estimated restoration time of 2:00 AM.
Businesses like the Westbard Giant and McDonald's have lost substantial sums of money during the recent outages. Yet, there's no indication that Pepco is addressing what are clearly problems with their grid infrastructure in the Westbard area. The result is a continuation of the Third-World uncertainty about the reliability of electrical power in that part of Bethesda.
