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.

[ARCHIVED] Public Works Overseeing Electric Transformer Change Out Nov. 27

The original item was published from November 20, 2017 4:19 PM to October 31, 2018 3:47 PM

About 14 parking spots will be temporarily closed in the 500 block of South Third Street in downtown Geneva Monday, Nov. 27 as crews change out a new electric transformer for Atlas Chicken Shack and Preservation Bread & Wine.

The parking spaces will be blocked off late Sunday night/early Monday morning to provide enough room for a boom truck to operate its crane. Traffic will be diverted into the parking lane on the west side of the street, so please use caution if you must drive through the work zone.

Parking spaces on the west side of the street are expected to be reopened by 10 a.m. Nov. 27.

For more information about the project, call the Geneva Public Works Department Electric Division at 630-232-1503.
