Have your say about Kingston Hydro’s electricity plans from July 3-17

Electricity customers - from July 3-17 we want your input on Kingston Hydro’s electricity plans by completing a 10-minute online survey.  Go to www.UtilitiesKingston.com/HaveYourSay and follow the link to the survey.

SEE INSIDE SUBSTATION #1!

Linked to the web page is a five-minute video that offers an overview of the proposed areas of focus, starting in 2021, to improve the safety and reliability of the Kingston Hydro electricity distribution system, while reducing the number of power outages to customers in central Kingston.  The video offers a look at seldom-seen infrastructure including underground downtown transformer vaults and the inside of Substation #1 at King and Queen streets.

Since the end of May, we have provided several opportunities for consumers to be informed and provide feedback on the reliability of the Kingston Hydro electricity distribution system and the spending decisions Utilities Kingston will make.

Kingston Hydro’s electricity distribution area is operated by the employees of Utilities Kingston.  Its five-year electricity distribution plan will help determine the company’s priorities and rates beginning in 2021 and will be submitted to the Ontario Energy Board. All feedback provided through this engagement will be included with the application.
