NIPSCO Power Outage Text Alerts

No matter the forecast, your safety and comfort are important to us. That’s why we’re always preparing for bad weather and potential power outages and why we help you stay ready, too. If your power goes out, you’ll stay informed with outage notifications, including info on why your power is out and an estimate on when it will be back on – whether you’re at home or away. Don’t be left in the dark. Grab your Account Number to get started.

Sign in with your User ID and Password and go to the Manage My Account Alerts tab. From then on, you’ll get a notification, wherever you are, anytime your service is interrupted. It’s a great way to keep tabs on pets while you’re away – or just make sure the food in your refrigerator is still getting refrigerated. We’ll include an estimated time of power restoration, too, to help you plan and to give you more peace of mind.


Why Is My Power Out?

We strive to keep your power up and running 24/7. But everything from trees to tornadoes can cause a power outage. Cars hitting poles, animals getting into electrical equipment and weather conditions can all lead to interruptions in your service. When they do, we pledge to react as quickly and effectively as possible. And we encourage you to sign up for power outage text alerts, which will include the cause of any outage you may experience.

Remember that during a power outage, you may lose access to other services as well, such as internet, cable, and phone. Ahead of any storm event, we recommend assembling an emergency prep kit. You may even want to install a back-up generator for worst-case scenarios.
