Power Warning currently in effect

Update: 6:30AM

Hydro is advising that Unit 1 at the Holyrood Thermal Generating Plant has been returned to service.  The unit is being loaded slowly and the Power Warning will remain in effect during the morning peak – we continue to ask customers to conserve electricity.

Please conserve by:

– turning back heat a few degrees
– limit use of hot water (don’t use dishwasher, clothes washer)
– turn off unnecessary lighting

This Power Warning is part of our commitment to keep customers more informed and educated on their provincial electricity system.  Learn more about the different stages of the advance notification system here:
