Power outages can result from storms of all types and severe weather. If you’re at home and the power goes out, please know CWLP crews will work to restore power as efficiently as possible without compromising safety.

When there are widespread outages, besides the CWLP Outage map,, the utility will update the local news media and its social media pages with the latest information to help get the word out to help free up our Electric Dispatch to be able to employ their most efficient response for power restoration.

For checking outage status, residents can input their street address number and phone number associated with their CWLP account on the CWLP Outage Map to confirm the utility is aware of an outage. Do understand during very large outages it may take longer for the map to update and restoration estimates aren’t always possible. You can also report new or unknown outages and damaged equipment or downed power lines to Electric Dispatch at 217-789-2121. Downed power lines can also be reported to 911.
