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.

People looking to report outages to the City should call the Public Works Electric Division at 630-2321503 during normal business hours and the Police Department at 630-232-4736 after-hours, weekends and holidays. The City's online request tracker system and social media accounts are not monitored 24 hours a day.

[ARCHIVED] Summer Draws Quite A Crowd To Geneva, So Think Safety First

The City of Geneva is a very popular destination spot, but the summer months certainly are the busiest time of year with countless activities and special events to keep residents and visitors entertained. 

Swedish Days, the Fine Arts Festival, Concours d’ Elegance car show, 5K runs, cultural arts events are just a few of Geneva's summer highlights. There is much more going on our community every day, including:

Runners and bicyclists enjoying a nice day out on Geneva's area trails.

The shopping districts in our community seeing a significant increase in foot traffic, and the neighborhoods are full of families walking and biking.

With all of this activity, it is extremely important to be aware of your surroundings and to practice defensive driving. The roadways can regularly be congested due to normal traffic flow and special events.

Be cautious as you are approaching crosswalks and assure that you yield to pedestrians. Maintain a safe traveling distance between you and vehicles in front of you. Obey the speed limits and make sure that you wear your seatbelt.

Last but not least, put your phone down when driving. Distracted driving is a leading cause of traffic crashes. It takes only a moment of lost concentration to be involved in an accident.

Best wishes to all on a fun and safe summer in Geneva.
