Electric service has to be interrupted during system upgrades or when maintenance is performed on electrical equipment. This includes equipment that delivers electricity to the homes and businesses in our service area.
We understand planned outages are inconvenient, but these are necessary for crews to work as quickly and safely as possible. We work hard to inform members who will be impacted by a planned outage. When a planned outage is scheduled, members will be notified via phone call and/or MyOutage text.
