When will we send you power outage alerts?

1. When the power is out​

You'll get an alert to your smartphone, letting you know that we know about the power outage. It might not come back on right away as it takes time for our crews to check out the problem and provide a power restoration estimate.

2. When we have updates about the power outage

 If you're asking, "Why is my power out?" or "Was there a power outage in my area?" our power outage alerts will help.

3. When the power is back on

Once we fix the problem and get the power back on, we'll let you know. If you get a power outage alert tha​​t power​ is back on, but you still don't have electricity, check the c​urrent power outage map. If you're not listed and and you have no power, check your breaker and then call (780) 412-4500.​

​Reasons to sign up for power outage alerts
