Emergency damage response

As an example, in 2017 a large electrical fire destroyed PECO’s substation in Philadelphia leaving 36,000 customers without power and destroying 40 primary 13kV circuits. Matrix NAC mobilized immediately and together with PECO and other contractors, worked to restore six critical circuits in only two days versus the expected ten-day schedule
despite fire-clean up, snow, rain, and frigid temperatures. All 40 circuits were restored in just three weeks versus the planned two months.
