Power Outages

The company has sufficient resources to meet customers' energy needs, but the low temperatures will put higher stress on mechanical equipment used to generate and deliver electricity. Isolated equipment problems are possible, which could result in scattered outages.

Customers who experience power outages should call Duke Energy's automated outage-reporting systems for their respective utility:

Duke Energy Carolinas: 1-800-POWERON (1-800-769-3766)

Duke Energy Progress: 1-800-419-6356

Customers may also report an outage or view current outages online at www.duke-energy.com/outages or text OUT to 57801.

With the colder than normal temperatures, it also is a good time to check on friends, neighbors and family members who may be elderly to ensure they have what they need to stay warm and that their emergency kits are ready in the event of a power outage.
