Our crews continue working on essential rebuild and maintenance projects in the communities we serve. Brief outages are required in order to work safely. Customers will be notified in advance of all planned outages. 

More information about planned outages that are required during upgrade projects.

Preparing for a Planned Outage

  1. If you have medical support equipment that is dependent on electricity, be ready with alternative plans, to maintain the use of your equipment.
  2. Ensure that the oven and all burners on the stove are turned OFF and that nothing has been placed on top of the stove that could ignite when the power is restored. GrandBridge Energy is not liable for any resulting loss or damage.  
  3. Have flashlights with fresh batteries handy.
  4. Minimize the opening of refrigerator and freezer doors to maintain temperature.
  5. Unplug electronic equipment before the outage begins. Televisions and laptops are sensitive to surges when the power is restored.
  6. Never use charcoal or gas barbeques, camping heating equipment, or standby generators indoors. Deadly carbon monoxide gas is produced by any device fueled by natural gas, propane, heating oil, kerosene, coal, charcoal, gasoline or wood.
  7. If you have a portable generator, operate it outdoors only, positioned carefully to ensure that fumes do not enter the building.
  8. Generators and hot gases should be kept away from combustibles.
  9. Store fuel for the generator outside in an approved container, a safe distance away from the building and generator.
  10. Refuel only after shutting it down and letting it cool. Follow manufacturer's recommendations regarding use.
  11. Make sure you know how to override or manually operate your garage doors.
