Maintenance Outages – Plan On It
If you receive notice of a maintenance outage, it usually means important upgrades are coming to your neighborhood. We isolate the smallest possible area and provide advance notice so you can plan and enjoy your day.
Prep Work: How to Plan
You’ll usually be provided with at least 3 days advance notice before a maintenance outage, and we’ll update you with changes whenever possible. Please contact us beforehand at 1-800-655-4555 if you plan to use a backup generator, so we can arrange to protect our crews from the danger of electrical backfeed.

Outage Day: What to Expect
A maintenance outage may not begin or end at the precise times indicated on your notice, and don’t be surprised if your power is turned off and on more than once during the outage period — this is normal. For your convenience, we isolate the area where work is needed and complete it as safely and quickly as possible, so we can get your power back on.Outage Day: What to Expect Learn More
