I would go with a parallel to the canon phrase from ST6:

   {tlham chu'Ha'lu'}
   "We've lost gravity!"
   (lit. "Gravity has been deactivated")

So we get {'ul chu'Ha'lu'} "Electricity has been deactivated".

Okay, you might argue that "gravity" is a device on a ship, but
"electricity" is not. But still, I think it works.
