How often will I receive text messages?

The frequency of text messages is based on the number of outages affecting your property or registered accounts. After reporting an outage via text, you will receive at least two more messages related to that outage: one with an estimated time of restoration (ETR), and one when your power is restored. If your ETR changes significantly while your power is out, you will receive another text with the updated ETR. You may also receive monthly billing and payment messages for each of your SMECO accounts.
