Scheduled power outage: Aug. 29 and 30, 2018
From time-to-time, we need to de-energize the power lines to work on the electrical system in your neighborhood. Most of the time, we can do this work without interrupting your electrical service. Sometimes, we need to shut off the power so our crews can work safely. We know being without power is an inconvenience. Other than your safety and the safety of our employees, there is nothing more important than getting the lights turned on. We appreciate your patience while our crews work to improve our system's reliability. We'll have the power turned back on as fast as we can!
