Power outages are an unfortunate event in this day and age, as almost everything, from appliances to entertainment gadgetry, uses electricity.

Charles Mix Electric employees strive to provide electricity 100% of the time, but unfortunately things happen preventing that from being the case.

If you do experience a power outage, follow these steps:

  • Check the fuses or breakers in your home or building.
  • Check the breakers under or adjacent to your electric meter. (Some do not have breakers, only a disconnect handle)
  • Telephone your neighbors to see if they have electricity.
  • Telephone our lineman on call at the numbers below. Be sure to have your location or street address available so the crew can quickly find you.
