The Board of Public Utilities is getting ready for a major winter storm, according to a spokesman.
The spokesman for the Board of Public Utilities stated that BPU line crews are ready to respond to outages and are prepared for this anticipated storm.
Customers, who experience an electrical outage, are reminded to call the electric outage hotline number directly at 913-573-9522 or online at www.bpu.com or via the BPU Facebook page.
BPU’s web site now features a “live” real-time electrical outage map that covers the utility’s entire service area. Customers can now see if an outage has been reported in their area, a summary of affected and restored customers, as well as the number of outage calls reported. To see this map, click on the “report outage” button on the BPU home page and the outage map is located on the next page. The BPU will also be sharing information on its social media sites.
