Life Support

Life Support/Medical Equipment Dependent Members

Continued electrical service is particularly important for our members who depend on life support and other medical equipment. PenLight maintains a list of such members. To make sure you are on our list, call Member Services at (253) 857-5950.

Planned Outages

2 wheelchairsOn the occasion of a planned outage (e.g., for needed repairs or upgrades), every attempt is made to contact life support/medical equipment users affected to ensure they are aware of the of the time and duration of the planned outage.

Power Outages

In the event of a power outage, it is important that you have emergency backup power sufficient to operate your life support/medical equipment. Due to system limitations, Peninsula Light Company is not able to provide priority response to life support/medical equipment members in the restoration process. This makes it imperative that members with special needs take precautions in case the power is out for extended periods of time.
