Geneva owns and operates its own electric utility, and we take great pride in providing reliable service to our community. However, like all utilities, we are susceptible to outages stemming from bad weather, animals and more. This blog is designed to provide updates on what caused outages after service has been restored. Large-scale incidents will be posted in real-time on the City's website homepage.
