What is Power Outage?


Power outage (also called a power cut, a power blackout, power failure or a blackout) is a short-term or a long-term loss of the electric power to a particular area.

What Causes Power Outages?

  • Other damage to electric transmission lines (vehicle accidents, trees, and animals can cause damage to power lines or equipment);
