Critical Customer Communication Program

Our Critical Customer Communication Program is designed for customers whose health is directly dependent on electricity, such as those requiring oxygen machines or dialysis.

Through this program we provide:

  • Advance notice of planned power outages
  • Contact during unplanned power outages expected to last longer than four hours and information on the cause and the expected time power will be restored
  • Updates if the restoration time changes during the repairs

It's easy to sign up 

All you need is a letter from your doctor or registered medical service provider describing the type of home/critical care you currently receive that is dependent on electricity.

Mail or fax your letter to us
