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.

Original Blog Post - Nov. 15
Utility Dynamics has moved its underground cable replacement operations to South Seventh Street in mid-November in Geneva.

Construction vehicles may be parked along Seventh Street with cones, but traffic lanes in both directions are expected to remain open.

Scheduled power outages may be required during construction, and impacted residents will receive notification two days in advance. Crews will be working in either the public right-of-way or in utility easements. Given the uncertain weather as of late, the expected completion may extend past the original  Friday, Nov. 22 timeline. Final landscaping restoration will be finished by May 2020.
