During an outage, you can reach us 24/7 by phone at 503-472-6158.

The answering service will forward your information to the appropriate crew for response.  You can also check the website (mc-power.com) for outage updates.  In large outages, we may not be able to respond to every call received, but McMinnville Water and Light’s top priority is restoring your power as quickly as possible.



On Monday, January 27 at approximately 4:45 pm, weather caused a tree to fall into the line near Peavine and Youngberg Hill Rd. causing an outage to about 103 customers along Peavine Rd.  MW&L crews responded to the reported outage, determined the cause, and had power fully restored by 11:00 pm.

If your power is out, please contact us.
