Electric outages and service issues can happen at any time for many reasons. To help clear up the confusion, we put together some of the questions we’re asked the most.
JEA first restores power to hospitals, public safety and other life support or life-sustaining institutions (this does not include customers using life-sustaining devices in their homes). Typically, these large customers are served by very large electric lines, which are the first lines to be repaired anyway. JEA crews will restore areas with the largest number of affected customers next.Learn About Our Restoration Process
Loud noises associated with power outages are often an indication that a fuse has blown. Fuses protect parts of our distribution system when severe weather strikes. A fuse will blow to isolate damage caused by trees falling on lines, lightning strikes, or severe weather. This will prevent surges from reaching greater amounts of customers on our system. The sound of a fuse blowing can be very loud and sometimes be mistaken as explosions. If you hear a loud noise when the power goes out, please include these details when reporting your outage. This will help us to evaluate the location of the problem and restore power more quickly.
There are many reasons why your neighborhood may have areas without power next to areas with power. Learn About the Different Reasons
JEA is responsible for removing downed electric lines caused by tree damage on your property. The property owner is responsible for removing downed trees on private property, including the removal of trees leaning on the house, garage or other structures. If there is damage to the weatherhead (where the electric wires attach to the house), the homeowner must also hire an electrician to make repairs before we can restore power to your house.Learn About Damages to the WeatherheadLearn About Tree Damage and Debris Removal
Many neighborhoods with underground utilities are fed by overhead lines. So, if a tree branch or equipment failure disrupts the overhead line, those communities with underground utilities that are fed by that line may experience power outages.
The city of Jacksonville urges people with special medical needs to register with them before any storms or upcoming events that may cause power outages, so that they can help with evacuation or shelter information should you lose power. They can be contacted at 630-CITY. If you are experiencing an emergency, call 911.
Why is responsible for repairs after a storm? If you have damage where the electric wires attach to your house, you must get a licensed electrician to make repairs before we can restore power to your house.
