OG&E Electric Services Asks Customers Still In Need of Power to Contact the Company

In an effort to restore power to tornado-damaged areas, OG&E Electric Services is asking that any customer still in need of power contact the company as soon as possible.

“We want to be sure that we have an accurate account of those customers who still need power,” said Paul Renfrow, manager of corporate communications. “This helps us ensure that we don't miss small pockets of homes that have the ability to accept power as it's restored. Even if customers have already called, we urge them to call again.”

He added that several-thousand homes and businesses will likely be unable to accept power because of the severity of structural damage. “Right now, these customers don't have a need for electricity, but as they rebuild and repair we'll have the power waiting,” he said.

Customers still without power may contact OG&E Customer Service by telephone at (405) 272-9595. Customers outside the Oklahoma City metro area should call (800) 522-6870. The company also has three temporary walk-up sites near damaged areas. These locations include: First Baptist Church of Moore, the 7-11 store at SW 119th and S. Western in Oklahoma City, and SE 29th and Vickie Ave. in Del City.

At 8 a.m. Friday, OG&E estimated that approximately 12,000 customers remained without power.
