Baltimore Gas and Electric Co.
, which fixed the last of its Cyclone Sandy
power outages Friday, sent workers to harder-hit regions over the weekend and on Monday.
BGE said 64 overhead linemen, safety and support workers are in the Philadelphia area, helping PECO. Both utilities are owned by Exelon Corp.
A dozen BGE natural-gas mechanics and technicians, meanwhile, left Monday to aid New Jersey Natural Gas, which shut off service to part of the state last week because the system had been so badly damaged.
Utilities depend on help from other power providers when outages multiply after bad weather. BGE said it had assistance from about 1,900 out-of-state utility workers in Sandy's wake, most of them overhead line crews. The final outages in BGE's territory were fixed Friday night, said spokesman Rob Gould. firstname.lastname@example.org twitter.com/jsmithhopkins
