Attention Alectra customers: voltage reduction tests for July 18

Although not expected to negatively impact homes and businesses in its service territory, Alectra Utilities is notifying customers of province-wide voltage reductions tests planned by the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) for Thursday, July 18, 2019. There will be two tests conducted on that day; a three per cent voltage reduction starting at 10 – 11 a.m., followed by a five per cent reduction starting at 2 – 3 p.m., each test will last approximately one hour.
Alectra Utilities, along with other electricity distribution companies in the province, are subject to voltage reduction tests, which are conducted by the IESO once every 18 months. The tests are done to assess emergency procedures and to measure the total amount of load reduction.
