Power Outage Follow Up: Hydro One Focuses On Chenaux Power Station


Hydro One was focusing on the Chenaux Generating station on Thursday evening as its crews worked on a massive power outage across the Valley yesterday.

The outage began just after 3:00 p.m. and affected 16-thousand Hydro One cusomters, and thousands more with Ottawa River Power Corporation in Pembroke,

Killaloe and Beachburg.  

Hydro One did not specify the cause but did in two of its social media posts during the outage that they were repairing a piece of equipment at the Chenaux Generating Station, which is along the Ottawa River between Cobden and Renfrew.

The utilities reported that electricity was restored everywhere by just after 10pm.
