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.

Recall Tag
The Geneva Fire Department wants to make residents aware of an important safety recall to Kidde fire extinguishers with plastic handles.

These fire extinguishers can become clogged and fail to activate during an emergency. Others might temporarily fail unless excessive force is used. In those instances, the nozzle could detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard.

Customers should immediately contact Kidde to request a free replacement fire extinguisher and for instructions on returning the recalled unit. For more information on the recall, visit the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's website.
