Christmas BGE outage for Davidsonville families
BGE spokesman Rob Gould said an animal caused a brief electricity outage on Christmas morning. Gould:
Electric service was disrupted to approximately 160 customers Christmas morning at 8:50am due to damage caused to electric service equipment by an animal. All service was restored by 10:50am.
This Sun reader named Roger was not happy:
That's right, 8:33am, right as we're opening presents, heat shuts off, lights go out, tree lights off, no running water or toilets (since many MDers are on well). Merry Christmas Davidsonville. Power goes out once per month yet we continue to pay premiums. The answer? Buy a $10,000 whole house generator. Their incompetence is baffling. They claim only 150 were affected but we've already learned that is not true. There is truly no accountability with BGE. I really hope somebody writes something.
