Planned outages

A planned outage is any time we intentionally disrupt electrical service to perform system maintenance or install new equipment. They’re part of our efforts to ensure our electrical system remains reliable.

We do everything we can to provide reliable power and minimize disruptions to your electrical service. However, as we repair, maintain, and upgrade our electrical system, there are times we need to schedule power outages. Read more about system renewal.

If you have an unplanned outage, report your outage online.

In many cases, planned outages are necessary for the safety of our crews as they complete their complex work. We may plan weeks in advance or we may have only 1 to 2 hours notice. Some outages are during the day and others are planned for the middle of the night.
