Restoration times

Many factors can affect power restoration times
Every power outage is different. Weather conditions. Accessibility to damaged areas. Equipment failure. And that means every power restoration time can be different, too. We will provide our best estimate based on similar situations and will work to quickly and safely reestablish your service.

How to prepare

Be prepared in case of an outage
In addition to signing up in advance for our outage alerts, here are some things you can do to stay safe during an outage:
  • Place flashlights and extra batteries in handy locations.
  • Have your APS account number readily available.
  • Keep important phone numbers such as medical providers, family, friends and APS stored in your cell phone or by your home phone.
  • If you use life-support medical equipment that requires electricity, call to register for our Medical Preparedness Program at 602-371-7171 (800-253-9405). This alerts us of your needs in the event of an outage.
  • Have a gallon of water available for each person as well as non-perishable foods.
  • If you have an automatic garage door, be sure you know how to open the door manually in case you are without power.
  • Make sure your phone is fully charged and have a portable charger accessible if possible.

Tips for handling and safety

Here are a few things to keep in mind during a power outage
  • Visit our Outage Center or download our app to report an outage and view our online Outage Map.
  • Be sure you know how to stay safe during an outage or a storm.
  • Food will stay cold for up to 4 hours in the refrigerator and longer in the freezer if doors are kept closed. For more information on food safety during a power outage visit foodsafety.gov.
  • Turn off and unplug all unnecessary electrical equipment and appliances. This will protect them from electrical spikes. Wait 5-10 minutes after power comes back on to plug in and turn on major appliances and electrical equipment.
  • If your home is the only one without power in your neighborhood the outages could be because of your home’s circuit breaker.
  • Do not try to repair electrical problems on your own, please call us or a certified electrician.

How to reset your circuit breaker
How to reset your circuit breaker

Watch this helpful video or review the instructions below.

If you think your circuit breaker might be the cause of your power outage, here’s how to reset it:
  • First, turn off all major appliances and most lights. Leave one light on so you can see when power is restored.
  • Make sure your hands are dry and you are standing on a dry surface. Identify the breaker switch that is in or toward the “off” position. Turn it all the way to “off” and then to the “on” position.
  • If all the power is off, the main breaker may need to be reset.
  • If the breaker tripped because there is something wrong with an appliance, be sure to have the necessary repairs made before using the appliance again.
