Text An Outage

Text An Outage

As technology continues to evolve, so do the options of how we can best communicate with you. When you experience an outage, you may want to speak to us directly. Or you may just want to know that we’re aware of the outage.

If you’re one of the many who prefer to communicate via technology, CFEMC is pleased to offer consumer notifications. With this service, we’ll contact you via text or email to let you know your property is without power and, once restored, to confirm that your power is back on.

How Does it Work?

When an outage occurs, our outage management system looks at the all of the power meters affected by the device interrupting power. Our system then looks at those consumers that are “opted in” to receive text and email notifications from us. Next, the following text or email message is sent to those consumers who have opted in and who have not yet called the utility to report their outage:

“Our system shows an electric outage at [service address]. If this location has power, please call 770-502-0226.”

Once the outage is restored, everyone affected by the outage who has opted in to receive notifications – whether they phoned in their outage or received a text or email message stating they are out of power – will receive the following message about the outage:

“Our system shows power is restored at [service address]. If not, please call 770-502-0226 to report your outage.”

Since news of the COVID-19 virus hit our area, we have paid special attention to all the information coming out both on a national and local level. That includes information from our state and local government officials, as well as the information coming from the CDC and the Coronavirus Task Force.  As more information concerning the virus and its potential effects on our families and our community, comes out, we’ve made changes in how we are working to protect you and our employees. 
 
Effective Monday, March 23, Coweta Fayette EMC will further limit its daily work activities to include only essential services. This means we will continue responding to outages, maintaining our call center, and addressing various reliability issues. However, all other non-essential activities and services are being suspended until further notice. Our lobbies will remain closed but the drive-thrus at all locations are open. Members can still utilize our many online options to monitor account activity through our member portal, send service request or make payments. You can also download our free CFEMC app (available in the App Store or on Google Play).   
 
Our focus is the safety and welfare of our employees and their families, while at the same time providing you, our member, with reliable and dependable electric service.

We urge you to take precautions for the health and welfare of your family as well. Please continue good health habits such as washing your hands and sanitizing frequently touched areas. We also encourage you to practice social distancing. CFEMC prepares for a variety of crises. While this isn’t an outage situation caused by a major storm, our emergency plans are updated frequently, and we feel confident in our ability to keep your lights on while keeping both our employees and you safe.
