Safety & Reliability

People's Energy Cooperative works diligently to maintain power quality and reliability, and takes every precaution to prevent electric service from being disrupted. However, with thousands of miles of power lines exposed to the elements, trees, and small animals, power outages do occur.

We regret the inconveniences an outage causes and work to restore power as quickly as possible. Lineworkers are on call 24-hours a day, seven days a week to ensure that happens.

With your assistance, we will work to restore power with minimal delay when an outage occurs.


Outages can be reported using any of the following methods:


  • Click on the "Report Outage" on the SmartHub home page
  • Call 507-367-7000 or 800-214-2694
  • Text in the outage
