Quaker Hill Underground Cable Replacement Project
Newmarket -Tay Power Distribution Ltd. (“NT Power”) is committed to delivering safe and reliable electricity to our customers. As part of our commitment to maintain reliable electricity, we have ongoing maintenance and capital project plans to replace infrastructure that is coming near the end of its useful life.
Recently, this neighbourhood has experienced higher than normal power outages as a result of aging underground electricity infrastructure. To mitigate existing reliability issues and reduce future power outages, NT Power is expediting its plans to complete the replacement of approximately 2.8km of new cables. This will increase resiliency and improve customer experience in this neighbourhood ahead of schedule.
NT Power will be retaining a third party contractor to perform Phase 2-4 work with a planned construction start in June 2023 and proposed completion by Q3 of 2024, weather permitting. Any restoration that is necessary will be completed to “as good or better” condition. There will be brief intermittent power interruptions required to complete this work for which you will be notified in advance. If for any reason extended outages are required, extended notification lead time will be given. NT Power will make every effort to reduce the frequency and duration of outages in completing this work.
