Outage Alerts & Preferences
Outage Alerts & Preferences
When there's an outage, we know how important it is for you to have the most up-to-date information as possible. Now, you can choose how we keep you informed - email, text, or voice message. Learn more about Outage Alerts and managing your notification settings in the FAQs below.
Outage Alerts & Managing Preferences
Outage Alerts are a new free service to inform you about power outages affecting you. You can sign up to receive voice, email or text messages by logging in and visiting the Outage Alert Preferences page.
These alerts will include status updates for both unplanned repair and planned maintenance outages.
- For maintenance outages, you’ll receive information on when the outage will take place, advance reminders, and status updates on any scheduling changes.
- When a repair outage occurs, you’ll receive updates with information like when the outage started, what caused the outage, and when the power will be restored.
You can update your Outage Alert preferences by logging in and going to the Outage Alert Preferences page.
You can unsubscribe by logging in and going to the Outage Alert Preferences page, or you can unsubscribe by doing the following:
- For email alerts, click the “Unsubscribe” link in the email footer.
- For text alerts, reply “STOP”
- When you receive a voice message, you’ll be instructed to “Press 1 to unenroll”
You may be listed as the primary contact on your account to receive Outage Alerts. If you'd like to change your alert settings, log in and visit the Outage Alert Preference page.
You have the option to sign up for one type of alert, or all. The choice is yours.
You could have multiple accounts tied to your name that are experiencing an outage. For text and voice, we send one outage alert per account that is experiencing an outage. For example, let’s say you’re signed up for voice alerts and you have three accounts in your name. If all three accounts experience an outage, you’ll receive a phone call for each account for a total of three separate alerts. If you’re signed up for email alerts, you’ll receive one email alert with all three accounts listed.
For multiple accounts, we suggest enrolling in email alerts. With email alerts, we bundle up all of your outage information into one email message.
If the power is out in your home or business, it doesn’t always mean that it's due to our electrical system. The issue could be related to something else, which is why we verify all outages before we send outage alerts. You can help us identify power outages faster by reporting your power issue in the Outage Center.
Please allow us up to 5 business days for your unsubscribe request to be processed. If it's been more than 5 business days since you unsubscribed and you're still receiving Outage Alerts, please call us at 1-800-655-4555.
