When Power Returns

  • Once your power is restored, turn appliances back on one at a time. If several large appliances start up at once when power is restored, they may overload your home’s electric circuits.
  • Power may be restored faster in some parts of your neighborhood than others, so please be patient.

Safety First

  • Avoid all downed utility lines. Assume that any line you see on the ground is energized and keep a safe distance away.
  • Don’t remove debris that’s within 10 feet of a power line. A downed wire might be hidden underneath.
  • Keep children and pets inside after a storm. Downed power lines are deadly.
  • Avoid standing water near wires and appliances.
  • If the power goes out, your electric garage door won’t open on its own. If you evacuate your home, be sure to have a door key with you so you can re-enter. To operate your garage door manually, pull on the emergency release cord and push the door up using the lift handle.
