Unplanned Outage February 26, 2020
After the waiting period, both InnPower and Hydro One crews began patrolling their respective infrastructure to determine the cause.
Patrolling is a necessity to ensure safety for people and equipment before closing in switches and restoring power. This can take some time to get crews to the affected area and then patrol all of the lines to ensure there are no faults present.
The cause was discovered at 1:33 pm reported by Hydro One. At that time InnPower staff had finished patrolling and could safely switch the affected customers to an alternate feeder.
A switching order was engineered and executed at approximately 2:36 pm to restore power to all affected InnPower customers until Hydro One can make repairs at which time we will transfer load back to the repaired feeder.
