What to do When the Power’s Out

1) In the event of a power outage, members should first check the circuit panel located inside the home. Also remember to check the disconnect panel on the outside, just below the meter base. If the breakers continue to shut off, members are encouraged to contact a licensed electrician.

2) Call Karnes Electric Cooperative at 1-888-807-3952. Be sure to follow all directions carefully.

3) Turn off all household appliances, computers, televisions, air-conditioning and heating units, etc. When power is restored, turn on items one at a time.
