Price City Announces Planned Power Outage Over Weekend


Press Release

Price city will have a power outage beginning at 12:01 AM on Sunday, June 2nd, 2024 and power will be restored no later than 6 AM that same day. During this time, Price City Utility customers whose accounts begin with 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 11, 12, 14, 16, or 17 followed by 6 numbers (ex: 1.0000.00, 2.0000.00, 4.0000.00, 5.0000.00, 7.0000.00, 11.0000.00, 12.0000.00, 14.0000.00, 16.0000.00, or 17.0000.00) may be out of power for approximately 6 hours until all of the work is completed. Not all homes and businesses in the affected area and with the indicated Utility account numbers may be out of power.

Please make arrangements with Home Health providers for your or others needs during this time. Limit the time and distance you have to travel within the affected area during the outage. Always treat any non-working traffic signals as four-way stops. Be alert and exercise caution around any area where crews may be working. Please do not call Rocky Mountain Power, Public Safety Dispatch, or 911 for updates so they may be able to keep their communications open for emergencies. Updates will be provided on the live Price City Power update page that customers can access on their phones from the link that will be sent out through our customer text-message notification system before the outage begins. To sign up for the Price City Power customer text message notification system text “power” to (435)636-3166 then follow the prompts.

Please note that If you pay your power bill to Rocky Mountain Power or Helper City you will not be affected by this outage. This power outage is being done to install and test a critical protection device in one of the City substations that is replacing a unit that failed in February.This device protects a large portion of the substation and the electrical distribution system from dangerous and potentially catastrophic events. It is required to shut down the entire affected area for the duration of the device installation and testing to ensure that the work is completed safely and properly.

It is our priority to limit the duration and frequency of outages and will only interrupt power when and only for as long as necessary to make these improvements.

Thank you in advance for your patience, Steven Richardson – Price City Utilities
