Four-hour outage needed to install equipment
Residents in Iqaluit can expect to be kept in the dark a little longer on Sunday morning.
Qulliq Energy Corp. announced Friday there will be a planned power outage in part of Iqaluit on Sunday from 8 a.m. to noon. The outage is required to allow for installation of safety equipment to the distribution system.
On its website, QEC offers tips for preparing for a power outage, which include ensuring cellphones are fully charged, flashlights are in good working order, and replacement batteries are on hand.
During the outage, QEC also recommends refrigerators or freezers remain closed as much as possible to avoid food spoilage, and camp stoves or barbecues should never be used inside to due to the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
