While most wildfires are started by lightning strikes or caused by human actions, utilities have a role to play in risk reduction -- and we are doing our part. And while we can’t stop wildfires, we can make our electric infrastructure more resilient to better withstand fires by using new construction methods and materials and keeping our system maintenance up to date by replacing aging equipment.Find Out More

In our ongoing efforts to make more information available to customers, we want to share a new tool: the power outage map.
The map, accessible at eweb.org/outage, provides the general location of a power outage within EWEB's service area, along with various details that will emerge as field technicians investigate the cause and determine repair strategies.
As the repair crews gather and report details from the field, a pop-up window associated with the outage location will be populated with additional information as it becomes available, including how many customers are affected, the estimated restoration time and the general cause.
While we have been nationally recognized for the high level of reliability of our electric system, the outage map provides the basic self-service information customers want when outages do occur. The map automatically refreshes every 10 minutes and information will updated as restoration progresses, so please check the map occasionally for the latest updates.
The map includes a "zoom" feature that allows users to dive deep into specific neighborhoods and/or their own streets. However, in order to preserve customer privacy, the map will not identify specific addresses, and instead will show the general location of the outage.
We recommend bookmarking the outage map on your mobile device so it can be pulled up quickly during a service interruption.
If your lights go out, the first thing to check is your circuit breaker box for tripped circuits or blown fuses. If there are no tripped breakers, do not assume that EWEB knows about the outage, and please contact us. There are two convenient methods to report an outage:
In order for your outage to be recorded and put on a restoration plan, you must report the outage using one of the methods above.
For faster outage reporting, restoration and status updates, make sure your current cell phone is tied to your EWEB account. This helps avoid extra steps during an outage. To update your account, Call Customer Service at 541-685-7000, or email email@example.com.
