Safety and Outages

Our Outage Management System (OMS) allows the utility to better predict issues that can be resolved before they escalate into outages and efficiently allocate human and other resources. It also provides accurate, real-time status reports on a broad range of information, from usage to repairs. The goal is to utilize this information to not only increase reliability, reduce outage times, decrease operating costs but also improve customer communications. As soon as the outage occurs our customers are informed via social media, the outage map on our website, IVR messaging is updated to reflect an outage and our auto dialer with begin calling out to all customers affected with an information message that an outage is occurring.
