We know outages cause real inconvenience and challenges for customers. That’s why we spend more than $100 million each year on repairs, upgrades and improvements to the electrical system across the province, including about $20 million a year on cutting back trees from power lines.
We work hard to stay ahead of problems. We have proactive plans to work on different sections of the system each year. We’re always inspecting, testing and monitoring our infrastructure.
The reality is we have a large, complex system that is exposed to all elements and there are going to be outages.
We must always balance investment with cost to customers.
