Outage Advisory: Small Area of Happy Valley Goose Bay

Hydro is advising its customers in the following area of Happy Valley Goose Bay of a power outage from approximately 10PM Friday, October 25th to 6AM Saturday, October 26th.

The Canadian Side including: Halifax Street (From Hamilton River Road to Toronto Ave), Ottawa Street, Stratford Ave & Winnipeg Street (From Ottawa Street to Hamilton River Road)

Urgent repairs are to be conducted by Churchill Falls to a broken cross arm on the transmission line serving the Upper Lake Melville area.  While repairs are conducted, Hydro will run available backup generation to provide power to most customers in the area.

However, please be advised that if local electricity load is greater than the backup generation can provide (due to colder temperatures), some additional areas may experience an outage. We are doing everything we can to avoid this and in consideration of the inconvenience outages cause our customers, we have scheduled this work in the overnight hours to minimize disruption.

We appreciate your understanding as we complete these urgent repairs.
