What the PUC needs to do is force Met-Ed and First Energy to update their equipment on their own dime. If Comcast followed Met-Ed's lead in upgrading their systems we would still be using dial-up!

Can't complain too much about a recent response - less than 10 minutes after the power went off, Met-Ed crews were working on a pole that blew a transformer and breaker. Less than two hours later, the power was back on. Nice job, guys and gals - nice work.

Met Ed has improved a lot since Hurricane Isabelle back in 2003.
There were some customers without power for four days.
One guy got so mad he dumped all the melted contents of his freezer in front of the Met-Ed office on Parkway.
That must have gotten the PUC's attention because repair times are much better now.

You call two hours later and the power was back on a great responce? Rotten job. How about these pinheads make sure the equipment can handle the load. Using a transformer that's 20 years old isn't smart. When they replace transformers there should be a way to tell if they are failing. Start replacing all the wire with real wire with insulation on it. It should also be illegal for them to have rolling blackouts. Wasn't Met Ed in charge of 3 mile island when it almost ruined a lot of Pa? And we allow them to manage the electric?
