According to Hydro One staff the three hour power outage which left over 200 Island households without electricity on Saturday morning January 21 was caused by work carried out by Surespan, a contractor hired by Windlectric.
Windlectric committed to the Ontario Energy Board that the project would have no adverse impact on Hydro One’s customers. The company’s carelessness is unacceptable and placed the entire community at risk.
Windlectric has been requested to provide a full report, to update the Emergency Response and Communications Plan as required by the Township, to provide the Marine Safety and Logistics Plan required by MOECC, and to advise what company procedures and processes have been revised to ensure that the company addresses the basics of safety such that the community does not suffer another power outage due to the Company’s ineptitude.
Windlectric posted an apology on its unmonitored twitter account which has 27 followers and suggested people contact the company but provided no contact information.
Windlectric staff warned pedestrians about the slippery mess on Front Road adjacent to the project site but the mud remains
