Outages will be displayed on the map above approximately 10 minutes after they occur and only provide general outage location area. Outages displayed on the map will be those that have been reported through smart meter communication protocols.
This outage map does not include momentary outages also referred to as ‘auto-reclosures’ as they are momentary in nature. Grimsby Power Inc. uses reclosers to remove temporary faults (i.e. potential tree contacts, lightning strikes, etc.) thus avoiding prolonged power outages on our distribution system.
During office hours outage status updates for unplanned sustained outages are also available on Twitter @GrimsbyPower
