Report streetlight outages to OG&E

Post Date:02/06/2018 3:04 PM

Call OG&E if you see a streetlight out in Oklahoma City.

 Dial (405) 272-9741 and be prepared to provide detailed location information to report a streetlight that doesn’t work. When reporting streetlights after hours, follow the automated system. When prompted, say ‘outage’ then say ‘light’ or dial 6. 

 OG&E can assist in determining who is responsible for maintenance of a streetlight reported to be out.

 If it’s an OG&E streetlight within the Oklahoma City-metro area, the company will deploy its contract crews to investigate the problem and start the repair process. The repair timeline depends on what needs to be fixed or replaced.

 If the streetlight is maintained by the City of Oklahoma City, OG&E will notify them of the outage. The City uses a contractor to repair the streetlights it maintains.

 Some streetlights are privately owned. Fixing those lights, or paying for the electricity necessary for them to be turned on, is at the discretion of the owner.

 About 220 streetlights maintained by the City downtown are being restored, and more repairs are ongoing. About 40 streetlights maintained by OG&E downtown have also recently been repaired.   Some streetlights that remain out are due to ongoing construction projects in the area.

 Follow the City of Oklahoma City on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and more.
