SaskPower is aware of outages impacting most of the City of Regina as well as other communities in the province.
SaskPower has suffered significant issues because of frost over the past few days and are working to assess the situation and make repairs.
This is what you need to know;
- The frost is causing lines to fall and sag; please be safe and stay at least 10 meters away. Do not try to remove frost from the lines yourself. Lines that look damaged can still be live.
- If you’re using a generator, you need to use an installed transfer switch. Without a transfer switch, your generator will feed power back into the lines, creating a serious hazard for our personnel working to restore power.
- Never operate a generator in a house, garage or enclosed building. Doing so will put you and your family at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Thank you for your patience as SaskPower works to restore power to their customers. SaskPower does not have an exact time for restoration but are looking at late this afternoon at the earliest for some areas.
