Estimated Times Of Restoration
Beginning at tomorrow, we will provide location-specific estimated times of restoration for those customers still without service.
During an outage, your neighbor's power may come back on while you remain without power. This may occur because not all circuits are restored to service at the same time, and diffe`rent parts of your neighborhood may be served by different circuits. Even houses on the same street might be served by different circuits.
Earlier today, Duke Power, through the Duke Energy Foundation, made a $25,000 donation for disaster relief efforts in the Triangle and Triad areas.
Duke Power customers should call 1-800-769-3766 (POWERON) to report outages. Spanish-speaking customers may call 1-800-943-6914. If your service is provided by another utility, please contact your electric service provider.
To remain safe, customers should stay away from all downed power lines as well as trees, tree limbs or any structure that the lines may be touching.
