How is power restored during a major outage?

When a major storm disrupts service to a large number of customers, our first concern is safety. During storm restoration, facilities that are essential to the health and welfare of the community are given priority — hospitals, health care providers, emergency services, public safety, water and sewage stations, and other vital community services.

After service is restored to priority customers, our strategy is to concentrate restoration efforts in the areas that restore electricity to the greatest number of people in the shortest period of time. ECG starts at the source of the power outage and works outward to restore electrical service.

When making a decision on where power should be restored first, we look at the amount of customers that are affected by the outage. If we have a choice to restore 2,000 customers or 100 customers, we would first work to get the 2,000 customers up and running.
