For safety reasons, there are occasions when Nelson Hydro must turn off the power intentionally in certain areas where construction, system upgrades, repairs and vegetation management are taking place. These outages are kept to a minimum and communicated in advance to minimize the impact on customers.
Keep an eye out for sandwich boards on the street, notices through social media, or crews knocking on your door to notify you of upcoming outages. You can also sign-up up for automatic alerts on your cell phone.
