Power outages may occur due to a number of different causes, from regional, large-scale blackouts, to local problems on power lines serving your home or business. Our electric operations center is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to dispatch a troubleshooter to respond quickly to power outage. However, if significant repairs are required after normal business hours, additional staffing for crews will require employees to report in, assemble materials, and make the necessary repairs.
You may visit our website (www.anaheim.net/utilities) and click on ‘Water & Power Outage Info’, where you will find real-time electric and water outage maps and an online form to report your outage and receive a personalized response from our electric operations team. We encourage you to sign up for Anaheim Alert (www.anaheimalert.net), the City’s email and text notification system. Please know that we make every effort to restore your power as soon as possible.

Anaheim requires all new customers to pay a security deposit before electricity can be connected. In compliance with the Federal Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act of 2003, Anaheim will check your credit rating with Equifax before connecting your electric service. You must provide your Social Security number so that we may check your credit rating with Equifax. Based on information returned from Equifax, Anaheim may waive the deposit requirement. If your Equifax report indicates that a security deposit is required, you may provide Anaheim with a credit reference letter from your previous utility company. Credit reference letters must be on company letterhead and must show credit information from the previous 12 months to be considered. If Anaheim approves the credit reference letter that was provided, your deposit will be waived.
