How We Restore Power

When the power goes out, all of our efforts are focused on restoring your service as safely and as quickly as possible. During large disruptions we work to restore power by feeder priority, making sure places like hospitals can stay open before we begin work in other areas.

Phase 3

Restoration of main electrical feeders servicing hotels, commercial customers, communities and neighbourhoods.

Phase 4

Restoration of branch electrical lines servicing individual streets.
