Storms and Outages

We work hard to prevent outages, but when bad weather strikes outages can happen. Our crews are prepared to respond and restore outages as safely and quickly as possible in all weather conditions, and we encourage our members to be prepared as well. By working together, we can help keep everyone safe and weather the storm.
