Here in Lansing, Michigan, we experience the pleasures of all four seasons, as well as, their tantrums. Over the course of a year, we see episodes of pouring rain, lightning, wind storms, sleet, snow and ice. We know extreme weather can be tough on people, but it's also tough on trees. In fact, downed trees and broken limbs are the number one cause of BWL power outages year-round. The BWL’s tree trimming program enhances service reliability.

The BWL outage line, 877-295-5001, allows customers to report a power outage 24 hours a day 7 days a week. It also provides service restoration times for customers seeking status reports on outages.
So, as you can see, long before a storm ever hits, the BWL has been busy preparing for it. However, no matter what the cause of an outage, our first priority, even before restoration of power, is the safety of our customers and employees.
