Outages

If Your Power Goes Out

Check your home's breaker panel and any outdoor disconnects to make sure the outage is not due to a tripped breaker. If you determine the problem is outside your home's wiring, call LEC's outage reporting number at 406-889-3301.

Please do NOT email outage reports - our email accounts are NOT monitored constantly and you could be without power for an extended amount of time.

Also, do NOT call the Eureka Dispatch number directly. During large after-hours outages, LEC employees will return to the office to answer calls and you will receive more accurate information by dialing 406-889-3301, each time, every time.

LEC dispatchers are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Please call anytime your power is out. Don't assume others have reported the outage - you may be the only one experiencing an outage. Once you make a report, please try to call LEC back ONLY if an emergency arises.
