Report an Outage
Tri-County Electric is dedicated to providing our members with quality, reliable electric service. However, from time to time outages do occur. We want to help you prepare for power outages and provide tips you can use to keep your family safe.
To report a power outage, call Tri-County Electric at (800) 522-3315.
Before you call to report an outage, check your main breaker or fuse disconnect at the house or on the meter pole, and look to see whether your neighbors have power.
When you call, provide the following information:
- The name on the Tri-County Electric account
- Your telephone number
- Account number (if known)
- Time the power went off (if known)
- Any observations you have made - downed wires, trees on the line, or similar trouble
Please be patient if the lines are busy. During major outages, our telephone lines are crowded with members calling in. Calls are answered 24 hours a day, and answered in the order they are received. For updates during major outages, be sure to like our page on Facebook at www.facebook.com/tricountyelectric.
