Previous Advisory

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro (Hydro) is advising that one of its transmission lines servicing the Avalon Peninsula tripped offline this morning and is currently out of service. Crews have been mobilized to locate and repair the issue.

A second line, which also services the Avalon, is fully operational and available; therefore there are no customer impacts.  As a precautionary measure, Hydro would like to remind customers of the importance of being prepared and staying safe in the event of outages. We will be monitoring the system closely and will advise of any changes.

This advisory is part of Hydro’s commitment to keep customers informed on the status of the electricity system and system events. For updates, follow Hydro on social media – www.Twitter.com/NLHydro, www.Facebook.com/NLHydro or visit us online at www.nlhydro.com.
