Overhead Line Conversion

PDI has an ongoing program to convert our overhead power lines from our 4,160 V Distribution System to our 27,600 V Distribution System. This allows us to lower our operating costs to maintain the older 4,160 V system. The typical scope of work is to install new transformers and replace any old equipment that is in poor condition.

Overhead Line Conversion WorkWhat should Homeowners & Businesses expect?

Area residents may be affected by temporary power outages as the transformers are replaced. Any residents affected by power outages will be notified by phone at least 24 hours in advance.  Notices will be posted regularly via social media and annually on our website.

For affected homeowners, please note the following:

During the course of construction, we endeavour to keep any inconvenience to a minimum. We ask if you could please avoid parking automobiles on the street during construction.

Traffic detours, when necessary, will be in place during the construction periods with local/emergency traffic and garbage collection permitted.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

After hours construction emergency calls should be directed to 705-748-9300.
