Customers who experience power outages are encouraged to call Bailey Powerhouse at 225-4011 to report the problem to the System Operator. If the System Operator is on another line or is busy dispatching crews, you will automatically be transferred to a voicemail, where you can leave a detailed message including the nature of the problem, your name, address, and contact phone number. During severe weather it becomes increasingly important for customers to call since there may be multiple causes of an outage at several points throughout the system affecting an individual customer.
You can also report and stay up to date on outages through the KPU Electric Facebook page.
What to do during an outage:
If wires are down, do not touch or go near them! Keep ALL people and pets clear and call 911 immediately! See our Safety & Education page for more information on what to do in the event of a downed power line.
