Power outages can be caused by various reasons, such as storms, high winds, fallen trees, and equipment failure. Whatever the cause may be, restoring power is a complex process that involves multiple steps and specialized equipment.
Here’s how Sturdy Power Lines restores power after an outage:
Step 1: Assessment
The first step in restoring power is assessing the damage. Our team of skilled technicians will inspect the affected area to determine the extent of the damage and identify the cause of the outage. This includes checking power lines, poles, transformers, and other equipment to see if they have been damaged or need to be repaired or replaced.
Step 2: Isolation
Once the damage has been assessed, our team will isolate the affected area to prevent further damage and ensure the safety of our technicians and the public. This involves de-energizing the power lines and equipment in the affected area to prevent electricity from flowing through them.
Step 3: Restoration
After the affected area has been isolated, our team will begin the process of restoring power. This involves repairing or replacing damaged equipment, such as power lines, transformers, and poles, and restoring power to the affected customers. Depending on the extent of the damage, this can take anywhere from a few hours to several days.
Step 4: Verification
Once power has been restored, our team will verify that all equipment is functioning properly and that there are no further issues that could cause another outage. This includes checking the voltage and current levels to ensure that they are within safe limits.
Electrical Safety Authority Inspection will be taken out and a connection authorization will be issued to the controlling authority (local area hydro). Once this is complete power will be restored.
Step 5: Communication
Throughout the restoration process, Sturdy Power Lines maintains open communication with our customers to keep them informed of the progress and any issues that may arise. We provide regular updates through our website, social media, and customer service representatives, and we encourage our customers to report any issues they may encounter.
In addition to the above steps, Sturdy Power Lines also takes measures to prevent power outages from occurring in the first place. This includes regular maintenance of power lines, poles, and other equipment, as well as investing in new technologies and equipment to improve reliability and resiliency.
