UPDATE: We’re working on the last of our outages. We appreciate all the kind words. We are working hard for our members.

UPDATE: another storm rolling in! We are at 168 outages. Please call our 800-642-1826 number to report any new issues.

UPDATE: as of 8:30 Sunday morning we only have ONE member without of service. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we worked through these outages.

UPDATE: As of noon, we still have 49 members without power.

The remaining outages will take a while to restore, because they are very scattered.  Also, if  a secondary wire from a transformer to a home that was knocked down by a tree limb, this is a time consuming task to safely restore power.
If you are still without power, please call  (800) 642-1826 to make sure you have been entered into our database.

As of this morning, we still have 55 members without power.

Please call 800.642.1826 to report your power outage. We appreciate your patience. With the severe weather and numerous phone calls, we have experienced a large number of overflow calls.
We do have a 24 hour after hours phone service.  They will be able to answer your questions.

Are you a renter? These simple tips will make it easy for you to save energy.

 6 Easy Conservation Tips for Renters

You may not own your apartment or home, but it’s easy to save energy and increase comfort. The following simple changes won’t cost you much, but they can make a big difference on your utility bills.

  1. Focus on lighting. Replace conventional incandescent bulbs with ENERGY STAR certified compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) or light-emitting diodes (LEDs). These bulbs use 75 percent less energy and last longer.
  2. Adjust the thermostat. Raise or lower temperatures (depending on the season) at night and when you’re away from home. If you have a programmable thermostat, set it to optimize savings while maintaining comfort.
  3. Go unplugged. Many electronic devices continue to use power when they’re turned off or not in use. Unplug battery chargers and any other devices when it’s convenient. Use a power strip as a central point to shut off power to clustered devices.
  4. Take shorter showers. The typical shower uses 30 to 50 gallons of hot water, costing you money. Limit your time in the shower to 10 minutes or less. Install water-efficient showerheads; it’s a low-cost upgrade that can reduce energy and water use.
  5. Cook up energy savings. Cooking at home is a great way to make healthy meals; these tips will help you trim your energy costs:
    • Cover pots and pans to cook food more efficiently.
    • Match pots and pans to the size of the burner, and keep burners clean.
    • Use a microwave oven to heat food whenever possible.
    • Scrape dishes before loading them into the dishwasher, and run it only when full.
  6. Use window treatments. During warm weather, close treatments on south-facing windows to keep out solar heat during the day. In the winter, open curtains or drapes during the day to let in the warmth of the sun; close them at night to retain heat.

Talk to your landlord or property manager about additional energy-efficiency improvements. High-performance windows, ENERGY STAR appliances and other upgrades will not only help reduce your energy bills, they’re also a great investment. Studies have shown that such upgrades can improve property value and increase occupancy rates.
