Helpful Reminder: How to Report a Power Outage

by | Jul 9, 2024


This week’s storms have been a reminder that most of us are still at the mercy of Mother Nature when it comes power outages. Here’s a helpful reminder of what to do in the event you lose power for more than a couple minutes.

Power Out? Report your outage to Duke Energy by texting OUT to 57801, report online or call 800.POWERON (800.769.3766).

Sign up for Power Outage alerts from Duke Energy to stay in the know, Duke Energy will notify you by text, voice message, or email when there is an outage in your area as well as estimated restoration times, any information we have about the cause of the outage and status of the crews working to restore power.
