Temporary Electricity Disconnection

Playing It Safe

Need your electric service temporarily shut off? Here's what you need to know.

You may start your request at any time. If you need to gather information, you may pause for up to 13 days and resume the request, or you will need to start over. You will save a draft request and receive an e-mail with a draft number. To resume the request, go to the resume request site, copy and paste that number and provide the last name as it is displayed.

Plan in Advance

You may need a planned, long-term outage for a variety of reasons, such as cleaning an exterior transformer vault, installing siding on a house, or making permanent repairs to a service. Here's how to schedule a planned outage. Please submit all outage requests at least ten business days in advance. Scheduled outages begin during normal workday hours from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m.

You may be charged for your outage if your request:

  • Must be completed during off-hours
  • Will require a dedicated crew
