“Including the cause of the outage, if a crew is currently dispatched and working to restore service, as well as the time of restoration for when we expect service will be restored,” he said.

No specific app is needed to find the information.

“Customers can access the new site from their mobile device by typing in from their browser,” he said. “The browser will automatically go to the mobile enhanced website, but if you are on a desktop you can go to and access our new outage map in the outage center of our website.”

The upgrades are part of an overhaul of the utility’s customer service operation.
