Powering Up

Power Restored
Geneva owns and operates its own electric utility, and we take great pride in providing reliable electric service to our residents and businesses. However, like all utilities, we are susceptible to outages caused by bad weather, animals, equipment issues and more. This blog is designed to provide updates on what caused outages after service has been restored. Large-scale incidents will be posted in real-time on the City's Alert Center on the our website homepage. Customers can subscribe to receive these updates via Notify Me.

The Geneva Public Works Department has contracted with Giant Restoration to paint fire hydrants on the City's west side starting as early as Thursday, May 24.

The company is expected to paint 264 hydrants in the coming weeks in an area primarily bounded by Kaneville Road, Randall Road, Bricher Road/Gray Street, and Charles Street/Western Avenue. A map is available to view on the City's website.

Hydrants that were already painted as part of the City's "Art on Fire" hydrant design program will not be altered.
