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] Stay Safe With The Return Of Events Season This Summer

The original item was published from June 15, 2021 4:25 PM to April 1, 2022 12:00 AM

With the State of Illinois moving into Phase 5, special events are beginning to make a return to Geneva.

Swedish Days will be the first major festival held in quite some time. It is important to remember that with the resumption of community events, 5K runs, and marathons, comes increased traffic, both pedestrian and vehicular. To assure for a safe return to events season, it is important to follow some basic safety guidelines.

  • Watch for pedestrians and stop for them in the crosswalk;
  • If you are a pedestrian, make sure motorists see you prior to stepping out into the crosswalk;
  • Do not use electronic devices when driving unless they are hands free. Even then, it is recommended that you do not utilize your phone when driving in heavy traffic or near pedestrians;
  • Wear your seat belt;
  • Be patient when driving through the heavier than normal traffic;
  • Be alert for temporary parking restrictions; and
  • Do not drink and drive. There are a multitude of alternative transportation options available.

Thank you for partnering with us to make the 2021 summer safe and memorable.
