Extreme heat can lead to power outage
This week’s record-breaking high temperatures bring with it the possibility of weather-related power outages. While we are not currently planning to conduct rolling blackouts, the electric distribution system is stressed and carrying some of the District’s highest summer electric demand load.
With these conditions comes the risk of unplanned power outages. We urge power conservation especially between noon and 8 p.m. Please be prepared for an unexpected power outage. If you have trouble with your service, call us at 888-774-8272.Outage preparedness
