When you have an electrical emergency, do you need an electrician or an Electric Utility Company? That is a good question! Unless it is a neighborhood outage or streetlight issue you will often need to call both the utility company AND an electrician. To be clear, you should call the utility company under the following circumstance:
- There are electrical wires down
- Electrical equipment is arcing
- Power outages
- Streetlight Outages
- Partial power outages
- Dim or flickering lights
As a courtesy, we have included links to the local power companies here:
Withalacoochee River Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Hernando and Pasco County)
Duke Energy (Pinellas County)
Tampa Electric Company (Hillsborough County)
Calling an electrician would be the second course of action. This is because many of these issues also require an electrician to disconnect and fix the service at the house or correct a major electrical issue inside of the home. You don’t want to wait for the utility company to arrive until you figure out you need an electrician too! That can make for a long day or night.
