BC Hydro warns customers to prepare for increase in outages this winter

Recent trends in weather patterns have BC Hydro warning customers to brace for a spike in outages this winter.

Over the past 5 years, the number of weather related outages faced by the utility have more than tripled.

Last year alone, nearly 150 storm events were to blame for almost 1.2 million customers facing outages.

While they were able to restore power within a day for the vast majority of those outages, BC Hydro is expecting the trend to continue for this winter, and as such are urging customers to prepare for the worst case scenario.
