During Power Failures

If there is a sudden power outage in your home, first check whether it is just your house or if it is the whole neighborhood. If it is due to a typhoon, etc. please contact Kyushu Electric Power.

If it is only your house, then it could be a fuse or the breaker switch. In that case, unplug or turn off any appliances and then flip the breaker switch. If the switch or fuse blows again then it is advisable to contact Kyushu Electric Power.
