Hot Line to Report Outages (866) 480-REMC (7362)
In order to provide the best possible service to you, we need your correct home or cell phone number that may be used to report an outage. We can’t stress this enough, because the right numbers will minimize outage times. The new outage management system is map-based and will allow us to restore power even more efficiently by providing data that can help locate and identify the problem. By tracking outage calls received, the system recognizes multiple outages and predicts what portion of the line is off. We’ll actually be able to see the electric lines affected and will be able to send crews out to restore power faster.
Because your phone number is our connection to you, it’s critical that we have up-to-date phone numbers for your account. The current number we have on file appears on your electric bill each month. Please verify this number, and if it’s not correct, please call us at 812-246-3316 or 800-462-6988, or send an e-mail to email@example.com. Thank you for providing this information as soon as possible!

Before you Dig: 811

Are you willing to pay your utility bills as well as those of someone else? Most of us would say no, but with utility theft on the rise, you are doing just that. The reality is, you are paying the electric, gas, water and cable bills for a number of people who decided to let you pay their bills while they steal and enjoy services for free. Utilities nationwide are combating this $6 billion crime, and unfortunately, the losses are passed on to honest customers.
Remember: When people steal electricity from your cooperative, they're stealing from you!
Summer heat brings swimming pool use, increased energy use and the drying of the soil. This combination, in conjunction with the non-conductive nature of modern swimming pools, can lead to shock problems around the pool.
