OG&E plans launch of first phase of customer notification options
Customers may opt to receive text, email or phone outage notifications that will include restoration estimates

Aug 9, 2017

Later this year, OG&E will make it easier for customers to learn more about power outages through text, email or phone notifications. Customers also will be able to report outages by text. The new notification option builds on current customer outage communications, which include outage details and restoration estimates by signing in at oge.com or by calling the 24-hour outage line, or checking System WatchTM , OG&E's online outage map.

  • OG&E works hard to provide a reliable electric system, and in fact, on average customers experience fewer than three hours of outages a year," said Terena Boyer, Director Utility Customer Operations. "However, when an outage does occur we know that customers can be frustrated and want to know about the outage and most importantly, when their power will be restored. This new system provides even more options for customers to stay informed during an outage."

Customers soon will be able to set their notification preferences online. Future services that will launch include billing and payment notifications and text to pay.
