Outages & Safety

Power outages can strike at any moment and are caused by a variety of problems. Most outages occurring in Delaware Electric Cooperative’s service territory are caused by severe weather, especially thunderstorms and heavy snow and ice. Malfunctioning electrical equipment and even animals can also lead to outages.

We understand that no one wants to lose power, but by being prepared, you and your family will be able to weather most outages. Check out this short video focusing on what happens at your Co-op when your lights go out.
