Report An Outage
Albemarle EMC maintains a 24-hour dispatch center. Please report
all power outages to the dispatch center by calling 1-800-274-2072.
Because a power outage can affect hundreds of consumers, your
call may be answered by a computer so that we may effectively
manage the large call volume. When you call, the number you are
calling from is sensed by the computer. If this number matches
the number we have for you in our database, it will instantly
notify our dispatchers of your address and location. We can then
dispatch crews quickly and efficiently to where they need to go.
Because your telephone number is an important factor in our
ability to quickly respond to your outage, please contact us if
your telephone number changes so that we may update our records.
Regardless of whether the number you are calling from is in our
database, all callers will have the opportunity to leave a voice
message. Please do so; we listen to each and every call.
