Chicago Power Outages Fail to Leave Aaron Equipment Company in the Dark

by AaronEquipmentCo13. July 2011 14:58
Chicago, IL – July 11, 2011 – The night the lights went out in Chicago last month, one company managed to operate business as usual despite a nearly three-day power outage. Aaron Equipment Company, a new and used process equipment dealer, leveraged the same standby backup generators it encourages its customers to own. As a result, the firm was able to keep its doors open and its customers’ orders shipping on time.

According to the “Chicago Sun-Times,” a storm that ripped through the Chicago area on the night of June 21, 2011 left over 267,000 without power. The next day, 189,000 Chicagoans were still stumbling around in the dark. ComEd, the region’s electric supplier, anticipated that its powerless customers “could have electricity restored by late Thursday” – a full 48 hours later. Even that far out, however, it couldn’t guarantee that full restoration would be the case.
