600 Customers Remain Without Power

TORONTO, July 10, 2013 /CNW/ - There are approximately 600 customers who remain without power due to localized issues.  Power has also been restored to customers affected by Hydro One's Manby station.

The system, however, remains at capacity. As a result, electricity conservation is crucial at this time to ensure its stability and avoid the need for rotating power outages.

Toronto Hydro is also monitoring the weather as a severe weather storm warning has been issued.  Emergency crews will respond to any outages.

Customers who arrive home and are without power are asked to report the outage at Toronto Hydro's Power Outage Line at 416.542.8000 to ensure we are made aware and can address it.

Here are some tips to help relieve stress on the grid:

  • Turn off all non-essential lighting.
  • Set air conditioner thermostats at 25°C and raise the setting even higher if you're not going to be home.
  • Close curtains and blinds to keep out the hot summer sun.
  • Cook outdoors on the barbeque or use a microwave oven.
  • Save other heat-producing activities such as clothes drying and dishwashing for cooler evening hours.  Wait until 8 p.m.
  • Businesses should keep their doors closed when air conditioners are running.
  • Unplug any non-essential electronic devices - even when turned off, still draw power.
