The powerful winter storm predicted for Friday evening into Saturday could result in downed power lines and potential electric power outages due to significant snowfall accumulation and high winds.
Customers who experience a service interruption in UGI’s Electric Division service area should call UGI at 800-276-2722 to report the power outage.
UGI also recommends customers with special needs make appropriate arrangements, including:
Remember that an electric power outage can affect natural gas equipment as well. Blowers and electronic ignitions on newer versions of appliances need electric service to operate. If your gas heater does not relight when electric service is restored, turn the unit off for a moment, then back on. If it still does not light, call a qualified heating professional for service.
If you lose natural gas service that is unrelated to an electric outage, contact UGI at 800-276-2722 (800-652-0550 in UGI Central Penn Gas service area) to report the loss of service.
UGI also recommends customers prepare for an electric outage by creating an emergency outage kit, including the following items:
UGI will be staffed to deal with power outages as quickly as possible.
