Power Outages

What Causes Outages?

Severe weather such as high winds, thunderstorms and freezing rain can result in power outages, but these are not the only reasons you might experience an outage.

Veridian’s system controllers and crews work hard to do their part in keeping the power on. But, sometimes outages are caused by circumstances out of our control.
