When an outage does occur, we act quickly to restore power for our customers by:

  1. Identifying the source of the outage and repairing high-voltage transmission lines, which carry power to more populated geographic areas.
  2. Identifying and fixing outages impacting critical services such as fire stations and hospitals.
  3. Evaluating and repairing damage to distribution lines that directly serve homes and businesses. Before starting the restoration process, our crews ensure that power lines on the ground won't pose a safety hazard to the community.
