Pre-Planned Power Outages

In order to keep our electrical utility functioning properly, we perform regular updates and upgrades to our systems. Sometimes this requires us to plan power outages.  Here you will find times and locations for future power outages that Summerside Electric has planned.  

Please be advised of the upcoming power outage(s): 

#1 Sunday, October 16, 2022  (Weather Permitting)

#1.  Outage Details

Date: Sunday, October 16, 2022 (Weather Permitting) 
Rain Date:  Sunday, October 23, 2022
Time:  Approximately 2:30am - 5:30am, Citywide - All Summerside Electric Customers without power. Approximately 5:30am – 10:30am, Some Circuits without power  
Where:  Citywide
Why:  Maintenance is being performed within the substation and throughout the city to increase grid capacity and stability
Details: All Summerside Electric customers will experience a power outage between 2:30am & 5:30am, then from 5:30am - 10:30am customers may experience intermittent power. What this means is that at 5:30am the power plant will be running at 100% capacity, but it is not able to generate enough electricity to support the whole city. Every attempt will be made to provide power to as many customers as possible, based on the resources available, with priority given to essential services.
