What To Do If The Power Goes Out
Check to see if the lights are out in neighboring homes. If they are, you're most likely a part of a larger power outage. If your block is without power, call SMUD's toll-free outage line at 1-888-456-SMUD (7683).
While waiting for electricity to be restored, turn off all electric appliances and switches, except the porch light or other light that SMUD crews can see from the street when power is back on.
Having just one light on lowers the initial demand for electricity and makes it easier for SMUD crews to restore electric service.
Listen to news reports to learn when the outage has been restored.
