Why we plan outages

Sometimes, you may hear that EnerStar will be having a “planned outage.” Ever wondered why? 

Occasionally, the equipment we use to bring power to your home needs to be repaired or replaced. When this happens, as a way to keep our crews and you safe, we plan a power interruption. 

“We do our best to plan these outages during times when you will be least inconvenienced,” said EnerStar’s Manager of Operations Tim Haddix
