Power outages in Hamilton

I emailed my Ward Councillor, Brian McHattie, as a private citizen on Tuesday expressing concerns about the ongoing power interruptions in my area of Hamilton.

It seems not a week goes by without some interruption in the west downtown district. Many of them occur during clear weather with little wind. Each one listed on the Horizon Utilities website are caused by “distribution problems.”

McHattie sent an email to Horizon asking for them to respond to my request for a more detailed explanation.

The director, engineering & operational improvement of Horizon  responded to my email and is investigating. I’ll share the information I receive back.
