With all the benefits that electricity provides, it’s an unfortunate fact of life that the power does, on occasion, go out.
There are a number of reasons an outage may occur, such as: snow and ice collecting on power lines; winds blowing lines and damaging equipment; vehicles striking a pole; people digging into underground lines; animals coming in contact with equipment; lighting strikes on lines or equipment; tree limbs coming in contact with lines and equipment; and occasionally equipment simply fails.
Hendricks Power invests time and money in maintenance and technology to ensure that power outages are infrequent and as brief as possible. Our team is constantly monitoring our Outage Management System, weather reports and our system map to detect any potential problems.
If you're power has gone out, please let us know either by calling (317) 745-5473 or (800) 876-5473 or click Report an Outage. You can also view a map that will identify the locations of outages that have already been reported, based on townships.
