Why we plan outages

Sometimes, you may hear that EnerStar will be having a “planned outage.” Ever wondered why? 

Occasionally, the equipment we use to bring power to your home needs to be repaired or replaced. When this happens, as a way to keep our crews and you safe, we plan a power interruption. 

“We do our best to plan these outages during times when you will be least inconvenienced,” said EnerStar’s CEO Mike Clark. 

Clark explained that while it may be inconvenient, planned outages are actually beneficial. “Regular system maintenance is critical for many reasons. Yes, power reliability is one issue to avoid after-hour outages but there is also the issue of public safety and the safety of our employees,” he said. 

Here at EnerStar, we want to make sure we are doing everything we can to keep you safe and to keep our system running smoothly. So the next time you hear about a planned outage, know that it is one of the best ways we can provide you with quality electric service.
