Afternoon thunderstorms can put a damper on summer fun and often keep Mississippi Power crews busy. Outages don’t happen often thanks to regular maintenance of our system, but when they do, our number one priority is restoring power safely and quickly.
Mississippi Power’s storm readiness and reliability is featured this in this month’s issue of South Mississippi Living magazine. The article shares information about the team that works to keep power flowing 24/7 -365.
On the rare occasions the lights do go out, customers can report outages and check the progress of repairs with our online outage map available for smartphones and tablets and enhanced emails and text alert tools.
Signing up for email or text message notifications online is simple. Customers first should log into their accounts on mississippipower.com. Once there, click on “Set Outage Alerts” and choose contact preference by selecting text, email or voicemail and provide the needed contact information. Customers can also set a time of day they don’t want to be contacted.
To sign up for text alerts, customers simply text “REG” to “MSPWR” or 228-207-7377 and they’ll have the option to sign up using their phone number or Mississippi Power account number.
Customers can also report and get outage information with the MS Power Outage Center app available for free in Android and Apple stores.
