Here's what you benefit from when you sign up for outage alerts

We know power outages can be disruptive. Our Outage Alerts give you the information you need to plan around them. You’ll also be able to report an outage by text! When you sign up to receive Outage Alerts by text or email, we’ll let you know:

  • 1. When the power is out

    We’ll send you an Outage Alert as soon as we know of a power outage in your area. As our crews respond to the outage, we’ll provide further information. In addition to our Outage Alerts, you can also use our interactive Outage Map to view outages in your area.

  • 2. When we have updates

    We’ll send you updates throughout the power outage. Our alerts will include any information available on the cause of the outage, the areas affected, and an estimated time of restoration to help you plan.

  • 3. When the power has been restored

    We’ll let you know as soon as power has been restored in your area. If you’re still experiencing issues, please call our 1-800-434-1235 for more information. That’s our power outages and emergencies line, and we’re here to help 24/7.

    You can also let us know if your power is out by texting 'OUT' to 92887 (WATTS) and follow the prompts to report your outage. Standard messaging and data rates may apply. Once you’ve reported your outage, you’ll receive an estimated time of restoration along with any other updates.
