How long will it take to restore my power during an outage?

Try the steps below to resolve your issue.

It depends on what caused the outage and how many areas were affected. Thanks to our Smart Grid, many outages can be restored in near real time, with no human intervention. However, sometimes there is so much damage to power lines and equipment that we will need to assess it on site and call in the appropriate lineman crews to fix it manually. In these instances, we will work hard to restore your power as soon as possible. You can report an outage, keep track of outage restorations, and more on the free MyEPB app.

Power bills vary depending on the amount of electric power you use. Weather plays the biggest role in your electric bill since your HVAC unit is one of your home's biggest energy users.
