CKTB - NEWS - Port Colborne Power

Port Colborne's power grid is going to get some upgrades and enhancements.

Hydro One is working with Canadian Niagara Power to invest $30 million to refurbish the Port Colborne Transmission Station by 2022.

In the meantime, Hydro One is moving forward with energizing a second power source to reduce amount of time residents are without power during interruptions.

"We would like to thank Hydro One for hearing not only the concerns of council but of our residents and businesses, making the commitment to adjust their delivery dates for renovations to the Davis Street Sub-Station and to re-activate the second line, C1P, coming into Port Colborne to ensure reliable service to our ratepayers," Mayor Bill Steele says via a release. "Partnerships are important to this administration and the recent collaborations between Hydro One, Canadian Niagara Power and the City of Port Colborne are proving to be in the best interests of our residents and businesses."
