Advance Notification Protocol

Working in partnership with Newfoundland Power, we’ve developed three levels of alerts to advise our customers of the province’s power supply status so that all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians can be better prepared for any potential impact. This is just part of a larger effort to keep our you—our friends, family, neighbours, and customers—better informed about the inner workings of our provincial electricity grid.
