Hydro One restores power to more than 400,000 homes and businesses

In central Ontario where many roads are closed, a Hydro One worker uses a snowmobile to patrol a power line (CNW Group/Hydro One Inc.)

In the wake of Friday’s storm, Hydro One crews have restored power to more than 412,000 customers since the start of the storm. As of noon today less than 10,000 customers remained without power, mostly in areas where significant snowfall caused road closures. Yesterday morning marked the first day crews were able to access a number of communities across southwest, southern and eastern Ontario that had been inaccessible due to road closures.

” We want you to know that we have all hands on deck and won’t stop until everyone’s power is restored,” said David Lebeter, Chief Operating Officer, Hydro One. “I want to thank our crews and contactors for their dedication and for always showing up when our customers need us the most.”

Significant road closures continue in areas including Walkerton, many parts of Muskoka, Owen Sound, Picton, Prince Edward County, Trenton and Napanee. While the company anticipates crews will make significant progress restoring power, customers in inaccessible areas due to road closures will likely be without power again overnight, along with some customers in the hardest hit areas.
