Crews are currently working to replace 2 broken poles on Chickasaw Rd due to a vehicle accident. We have isolated the outage to a small portion of customers along Chickasaw and Green Acres. We also have a portion of Chickasaw Rd blocked. We ask that you take an alternate path for the next few hours. All power should be restored in the next 3 to 4 hours. Thank you for your continued patience!

Today was the first ever Take Your Child To Work Day at BPU. What an amazing day for our kids! As you can see from these photos, the kids have had a busy day. They were able to visit every facility (five different locations in all). Kids were able to see what their parent does at BPU as well as participate in a learning experience with electricity, water, and wastewater. BPU employees (and retirees) deserve much credit for creating an educational opportunity in sharing what we do each day at our utility. Also, thank you to HCSS and PSSD for supporting this activity. BPU employees are proud to serve this community and today they were able to share that pride with their own children. I think the kids are pretty proud of their mommas and daddies too!

ATTENTION: Please be aware that a phone scam has been identified. BPU customers are receiving bogus calls from an 800 number asking for payment in order to prevent immediate disconnection of power. If the number is dialed, they will answer "BPU". Please call 642-1322 for any concerns about your account. We apologize for this inconvenience!
