We currently have no large-scale power outages to report. (Please note, individual outages will not be posted.)
If you are currently experiencing a power outage, please check a few things before reporting it to the cooperative:
The first thing to do is check your meter (weather permitting). If your meter's electronic display is blank, then a call to the cooperative is necessary and a crew will be dispatched to restore your power.
If the meter is displaying or flashing any numbers, then you do have power at the meter and will need to further check your service, as the cooperatives service ends at the meter itself. Check the main breaker below the meter (if your meter is on the pole) and check the fuses or breakers at the breaker box. If all the fuses and breakers are functioning properly and you still are without power, a call to an electrician may be necessary.
While it is our goal to prevent power outages, it is our responsibility to be prepared for any outages as they occur. Southwest Electric Cooperative's outage phones are answered, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To report an outage please call 800-262-0326. Please have your account number, map location, meter number, or phone number on your account available for the location in which you are reporting the outage.
