BPUB is asking for customers to help by turning off their heaters and unplugging any equipment that they are able when they experience a power outage. Doing so should aid in getting customers restored once power is available.


Attempts to restore electrical service to certain areas have been unsuccessful because of the sudden demand for a large amount of electricity once the area is re-energized. By unplugging or turning off equipment while experiencing an outage, this helps prevent that sudden surge of electrical demand and should allow additional customers to regain service.
