is the power available"

Hi teachers,

When I enter my house I ask my dad “is the power available” is correct and common in use or tell me a common phrase?

  1. The power will come at 1 a.m.

  2. The power has gone.

Many thanks in advance.

The responses would typically be:
The power will come on at 1 a.m.
or
The power is off.

Obviously, it’s not a common expression in countries where we expect electricity to be available all the time, but when there is a power cut, then ‘Is the power on?’/‘Is the power back on?’ / ‘Is the power still off?’ would be more common than ‘Is the power available.’

Thank you, Madam BN. :slight_smile:
