We sometimes interrupt service for maintenance work. We work to inform you and your community in advance of such outages.
Our crews work around the clock to restore service following a variety unexpected outage causes:
A power outage may last a few minutes, a few seconds or even just an instant. Power outages of less than 5 minutes are considered momentary. Momentary outages are caused by wildlife, weather or trees making contact with our electric lines, or by contractor dig-ins into underground facilities. In many instances, our electrical system can reset itself within minutes. Other times, a repair crew is sent to fix the problem.
