Commonwealth Edison Now Has
2-Way Text Messaging
Capabilities With Customers
Regarding Power Outages
    
 
 
 
     If you're like me, you walked into your  Lockport, IL   home after work the other day and found that you had lost electrical power to your property at some point earlier in the day.
 
Don't Sweat your Mortgage Financing.  Contact Gene Mundt, Mortgage Lender today!     All the tell-tale signs were there.  Clocks needed to be re-set and things were blinking all over the place.  With the heat being in the mid-90's that day, I felt we were very lucky ... the electricity had already come back on.  And the A/C was back working.
 
     But if that hadn't been the case in our immediate area, were you aware that Commonwealth Edison, our electrical provider, has now started a 2-way text messaging service enabling their customers to text outage information to the company?  And the customers can now receive info back regarding restoration of their service too.
 
    Commonwealth Edison  customers need to opt into participating in this text service.   To sign-up, go to:
 
 
    Reporting an outage to ComEd is simple too.  Just text  OUT to 26633 (COMED).
 
     One you complete this simple task, you'll be "in the know" regarding your ComEd electrical service ... and your future outage's restoration schedules.

     I can be found through any of the following:

So there you are sitting on your kitchen floor hugging the freezer and wondering when the AC is coming back on, at least you have the possiblity of texting to Commonwealth Edison, is that the idea? And then what? Does Commonwealth Edison say they don't know when the utilities will be restored and thank you for your patience?

Good for them, Gene.  At least their employees don't have to answer the same call over and over.  Hopefully, it was't a 'brownout' from too much power being consumed, trying to keep everyone cool.

See?  That's why I like you so much, Elizabeth.  You cut to the chase!  And yes, you probably get a message back with a polite ending ... but at least you know something, right?  And you know the problem has, at minimum, been reported.   It's a start ... lol

Not thinking so, Joetta ... there were actual crews out with a truck in the subdivision over from us ... so I wasn't overly surprised when I walked in and saw we'd been out for a bit.  Brown-outs and rolling brown-outs have been an issue in our area in the past.  Supposedly ComEd has addressed concerns.  As always, time will tell .. especially if we continue to have a summer with higher temps ...

That is a great program, and one that so many people could use with elderly parents or pets at home. 

Excellent material for a post, Gene.

Thanks, Don ... and you're right.  The uses are vast and many ... esp. for those with health concerns or issues ...
