Electrical Equipment Replacement and Power Outage - Cygnus Street

From Hydro Ottawa

On January 22, 2024, Hydro Ottawa will be replacing electrical equipment that will impact customers located on Cygnus Street.


We recognize that construction and power outages can be disruptive. Our goal with this work is to maintain the electricity system so we can prevent larger and longer unplanned outages from occurring in the future. Please be assured that scheduling of this power outage has been reviewed and will move forward with our customers’ best interest in mind. 


You may notice increased construction presence throughout the day. Traffic control and lane reductions will be implemented to ensure that roads and sidewalks remain safe for residents and staff. Construction activities will take place on an easement - a legal right of access for Hydro Ottawa to a portion of a residential property for the purpose of installing and maintaining its electrical distribution system.


As mentioned above, a planned power outage is required as a result of this work. All affected customers are contacted by phone, text or email - depending on the communication preferences indicated on their account - and informed by a written notice delivered to their door, if applicable. Further, notifications will be provided if the power outage is to extend beyond the original duration time. In the case of circumstances beyond our control, the outage may be rescheduled.


Our qualified staff and contractors will conduct this work safely and efficiently, ensuring that any inconvenience is minimal.
