My home electricity flickers off and on. What should I do?

Electricity flickers are usually harmless and can be caused by lightning, outside contact with the electrical equipment, a downed electrical pole, or underground damage. If you are experiencing frequent electricity flickers, contact your local utility company to see if there is a service problem in your area.
