When there is a power outage in Maryland you depend on your Emergency Backup Generator. Or you wish you had one! In our major service areas of Annapolis, Maryland, Laurel, Bowie, College Park, Glen Burnie, Crofton and Pasadena we see several power outages every year. Sept 10th 2014 we saw a small power outage in the Millersville area. Our emergency backup generators ran with no problems and service was not interrupted.
Checking Power Outages in Maryland
If you are a Maryland BGE customer then there is an interesting site that reports on current Maryland Power Outages Map. It reports status on many things including:
- Number of customers effected,
- Time and Date of first report of Outage
- Probable cause (if available)
- Estimated Time of Restoration
- The Location : Annapolis, Laurel, Bowie, College Park, Glen Burnie, Crofton, Pasadena, Maryland
Here is a snapshot of what you can expect on a Desktop computer:
The Mobile version also displays and operates well on most smart phones. So if you have taken off to work (trusting in your GroveHVAC installed Backup Generator) you can check into the outage even when you are not in your Maryland home.
The results are “near” real time. So for example when we check on Annapolis for Power outages there is one and the “Number of people effected are 15″ Checking back at the end of this blog shows that Annapolis has been updated and the estimated total repair time is 4 hours.
Pasadena and Glen Burnie “share” an outage near their meeting points on the map, which is quite interactive.
There is a second outage in the Odenton and Severn area.
Laurel, Bowie, College Park, Crofton are all free of outages at the current time as an example. It is impressive how interactive and detailed the map provides information.
Reporting a Power Outage in Maryland
While your backup generator keeps you comfortable, safer, drier and the temperature perfect with your grove HVAC furnace or air conditioning unit you can also report a power outage so that all your friends and neighbors don’t lose the contents of their freezers and refrigerators. The Large orange button titled “REPORT AN OUTAGE” is near the top of the screen right above the map. The BGE power outage Phone Number is always an option at 877.778.2222
