Power Outage April 19, 2019

Posted April 25th, 2019

We understand that power outages can be inconvenient and we thank you for your patience as Grimsby Power staff work diligently to restore power and provide information to our customers.

On April 19, 2019 portions of the Town of Grimsby experienced an unplanned outage.  One outage that occurred at approximately 8:00am and another outage that occurred at approximately 9:00am.  The outages were caused by two separate issues.  The first issue was related to a failed piece of equipment.  The second issue, and the largest, was a loss of supply from Hydro One. 

Our crews were dispatched immediately and repaired the failed equipment by approximately 9:20am.  Our crews also contacted Hydro One to resolve the issue surrounding loss of supply.  When there is a loss of supply from Hydro One the issue is occurring outside of our service territory and Hydro One is responsible for restoring the supply.  Our crews assisted Hydro One to resolve the issue.  The supply from Hydro Once was back up at approximately 10:20am with our crews working until approximately 10:30am to resolve any minor issues related to the loss of supply.

During the outage - information was posted on our website and we immediately responded to emails through info@grimsbypower.      

During Friday’s outage Grimsby Power’s afterhour’s phone service provider also lost power.  Their outage paired with a large volume of calls resulted in “dropped” calls.  Grimsby Power is reviewing options to reduce the number of dropped calls.

We would like to thank you for your patience during these unplanned outages and we will continue to work diligently to restore power to you our customers.

Starting January 1, 2021, a portion of renewable energy contract costs will be funded by the Ontario government instead of electricity customers. This will lower electricity bills for large and mid-sized commercial and industrial consumers who do not participate in the Regulated Price Plan (RPP) or receive the Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER) by reducing Global Adjustment (GA) costs. Class A consumers could see savings of about 15 per cent on their bills, while non-RPP Class B consumers could see savings of about 16 per cent on their bills*. Actual savings will vary depending on customers’ location and electricity consumption. RPP customers who receive the OER, such as residential, small business and farm consumers, will receive an adjusted rebate percentage starting January 1, 2021, to keep the average residential bill flat compared to November 2020. For a temporary period of 28 days starting January 1, 2021, all RPP customers, including those paying both time-of-use and tiered rates, will also benefit from being billed at the off-peak rate for 24 hours a day, seven days a week. *In 2021, Class A and Class B consumers could see savings of about 11% and 12%, respectively, due to the Global Adjustment (GA) deferral repayment in effect for 12 months starting January 2021.
