Planned Power Outage

Please note that there will be a planned power outage on Sunday, May 28th from 7am – 5pm for equipment repairs and replacements.

We are sharing this message from BC HYDRO 

Similar to previous years and as part of our sustainment plan, our transmission team has a number of end of life transmission structures and equipment that need to be replaced or repaired. Some of the work requires a helicopter and for safety a 10-hour, daylight power outage is required. The outage will impact North Island communities from Woss to the tip of Vancouver Island. When planning our work and this outage we’ve considered previous feedback from the communities impacted as well as; safety, required pre-work, equipment/crew availability, extended daylight hours and favourable flying weather.

Please plan accordingly. If you have questions or comments please contact BC HYDRO directly.
