Reporting An Outage

What should I do if my power is off?

First, check your home’s breaker panel and any outdoor disconnects to make sure the outage is not due to a tripped breaker in your breaker panel.

Next, call or check to see if several of your neighbors’ power is off.  This will help you determine if the problem exists inside your home or is a result of a power outage on our lines.

Who do I call to report my outage?

If you determine the problem is outside your home, call 800-562-3532 to report the problem.  Our 24-hour dispatch service will take your call and dispatch service personnel to your home.  Our dispatch service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

What steps do I take to sign up to text my outage information?
