Power's Out?

Power’s out, now what? You can make losing power much less of an inconvenience by being prepared. It’s not just powerful hurricanes that leave us in the dark. If you read last month’s blog, you learned strong thunderstorms, animals, and car accidents, among other things, can leave us in the dark. The first thing everyone wants to know during a power outage is “How long is the power going to be out? A few hours, a few days or a couple of weeks?“

Stay informed when the lights go out.

When your power goes out, you want to know when you can expect to have it back on. Our mobile-friendly text notifications provide up-to-date information about current outages — including estimated restoration times as soon as we know them and our interactive outage map of outage areas. If you are not your registered and would like to register text REG to 21592. You can also get outage information on a specific outage by texting STAT to 21592. Message and data rates may apply.
