Approximately 170 Deerfield customers remain without power, and restoration times are now being made available. Some customers who experienced the greatest damage and single-customer outages may take longer to regain power and extend into Wednesday and Thursday. ComEd expects that all customers will be restored by Thursday night. The Village continues to advocate for the quickest restoration possible.

ComEd crews are working around the clock to restore power and have brought in additional crews from across the country to assist with restoration efforts. The November 25 winter storm event caused over 350,000 customers to lose power in the ComEd service territory. Approximately 40,000 customers remain without power.
We would like to remind those without heat to leave faucets trickling to prevent frozen pipes. Additionally, if you or someone you know is without heat due to a power outage or other circumstances, the Deerfield Police Department (850 Waukegan Road) is a designated warming shelter and is open 24/7. Should the need arise, additional warming facilities will be made available. Be sure to check on your neighbors and the elderly.
Village staff will remain in contact with ComEd until restoration is complete. ComEd asks residents to continue reporting outages online, with the mobile app or via phone at 800.334.7661.
