In-Home Safety FAQs

If my home has structural damage, can’t Alabama Power go ahead and turn power back on before repairs are made?

No. Each county has guidelines that the company must follow in connecting service. The first consideration – for both the county and Alabama Power – is protecting the homeowner’s safety. As a general rule, a licensed contractor must make repairs and an inspection permit must be issued by the county before we can restore electricity to a damaged structure.
