Additional information from NIPSCO:
Customers without power can report an outage from a smart phone or other mobile device, on a computer via the NIPSCO.com/OutageCenter or by calling NIPSCO Customer Service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-4NIPSCO (1-800-464-7726).
In any storm event, the safety of the public as well as those working on the lines is the top priority. Before restoring service, we must locate downed power lines and make sure electricity is no longer flowing through the wires.
NIPSCO’s restoration process begins with repairing large transmission and distribution lines that supply electricity to large numbers of customers in large geographic areas – including critical customers such as hospitals and emergency response. Repairs to other lines that serve smaller groups of customers can’t be made until the larger lines feeding electricity to those areas are repaired.
Customers with storm damage near their electric meter are encouraged to contact an electrician to repair any damage to this connection point between your electric meter and your service line to the utility pole. If the weatherhead connection is damaged, customers must have this connection fixed by a licensed electrician before NIPSCO can return the customer’s electric service. For more information, please review this company fact sheet or contact NIPSCO at 1-800-4-NIPSCO (1-800-464-7726).
