What is wrong with PECO? We lost power last week in Southampton for over a hour on a sunny day. Why can't they keep the power on? They are no better than a Third World country.

PECO needs to truly invest in a more sound modern infrastructure that can support the ever growing community here in Bucks county. I understand mother nature can take us by surprise. But losing power like we do should be addressed. No more band aids!
