On Friday, September 21 we were hit with a severe wind storm that saw several tornadoes touch down in the province and impacted over 450,000 of our customers. Our crews hit the ground to restore and replace poles, power lines and transformer station equipment, and worked relentlessly until the power was restored to every single customer. We know that any storm like this impacts your life and we always work to restore power as quickly and safely as possible.
We’re stronger when we work together.
Your support during this difficult time was appreciated by everyone on our team. Thank you for your kindness, understanding and patience as we helped get things back to normal.
A special thank you to our neighbouring utilities that helped us with the restoration efforts: Kitchener Wilmont Hydro, Guelph Hydro Electric Systems Inc., London Hydro, Oshawa Power and Utilities Corporation, Peterborough Utilities, Utilities Kingston, Ottawa River Power Corporation, Cornwall Electric, Valard Construction, K-Line Group of Companies and PowerTel.
Anytime there’s an emergency, you can always count on us to be there.
Our team is ready to respond 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to power outages and emergency situations. During a power outage, our crews patrol power lines to determine what caused the power outage, and we don't stop until power is restored to each and every customer.
Thank you for all you do to power us.
