As you know interruptions in power occur periodically in our area. These outages are typically outside of our control. It is important to report an outage to Xcel Energy directly at 1-800-481-4700 or via their website at https://www.xcelenergy.com/ Xcel requests that each individual business contacts them directly in order to properly document the outage.
In order to best protect your IT equipment during outages, it is recommended that all computers and related equipment are plugged into a battery back-up or UPS (uninterruptable power supplies). UPS units are like power strips that contain a big battery inside, providing a buffer against power supply interruptions. This buffer can range from a few minutes to an hour or more depending on the size of the unit. These can be purchased from local retailers such as Batteries Plus and Best Buy, as well as several online retailers.

As you may know, Xcel Energy offers the Saver Switch program for tenants with direct electric service. By participating in the program you receive a discount on your cooling costs during the summer. In exchange, Xcel may cycle your AC on and off during peak cooling times. Your system fan will stay on and will circulate already cooled air throughout your space, but you may notice a slight increase in temperature. For more information Click Here.
