A power outage, while you’re on vacation or at work, can sometimes be just as inconvenient as if you were home. If you’re concerned about a loved-one living alone, you’d definitely want to know if and when they’ve lost service.
Broad River Electric’s new outage notification texts is another helpful source of energy information. The text will alert your cell phone and/or email of outages in your area and follow-up with another message when power has been restored.
This service not only keeps members and their loved ones abreast of service interruptions at their homes but could also make it unnecessary to notify the cooperative of an outage when they are home.
An easy registration and account management process may be necessary. The cell number used to sign-in must be associated with the account.
