Power Restoration

Restoring Your Power

We follow a specific process to restore your power as safely, efficiently and quickly as possible.

Our Restoration Process

Severe storms can cause a large number of customers to lose their electricity at the same time. We follow a specific plan to restore electric service, starting with safety.

Priority is given to facilities that are essential to the health and welfare of the community, like hospitals, police and fire departments. Next, we do whatever it takes to bring the most people’s power back the fastest.

The question remains: “When is the power going to be back on?” We do our best to provide an answer, but there are a lot of unknown conditions that make it hard to predict exactly when your power will be back on. Accessibility to damaged areas, the time of day, environmental issues, and other factors make it hard to predict restoration times. Now you can stay informed and get status updates while we work to get your power back on. Sign up here for myOGEalerts and select your notification preference – text, email or phone.

Rest assured that we’re working hard to have you back on track just as soon as possible.
