Power outage affecting area along South Main Street

Wednesday, April 4, 2018 - 10:56am

Approximately 30 Wake Forest Power customers who live in the vicinity of South Main Street, between Ligon Mill Road and Rogers Road, are without power this morning after a UPS truck struck a transformer box along the 200 block of Alberbury Commons Court.  

There are no reported injuries.

Electric crews are on the scene, and power is expected to be restored by 1 p.m.

Wake Forest Power makes it easy for customers to report electric outages and stay informed about power interruptions in their area through its Outage Management System (OMS). The highlight of the initiative is an automated outage reporting telephone number: 919-761-7899.

Customers need only to call 919-761-7899 and follow the prompts to quickly notify Wake Forest Power that their electricity is out.

When a customer calls the outage reporting number, the OMS attempts to identify the telephone number from which the customer is calling and match that number to their account. As long as Wake Forest Power has the number in its system, the OMS will recognize the customer. If Wake Forest Power does not have the number, or if the number on file is wrong, information pertaining to the customer's account will not be found.

Wake Forest Power is asking customers to make sure they have provided accurate contact information. More specifically, customers are asked to register up to two phone numbers associated with their account. For more information, visit www.wakeforestnc.gov//wake-forest-power/report-power-outage.
