ENWIN Utilities Ltd. Reports Multiple Outages Throughout the Night Due to Severe Storms

Due to the storms witnessed across Southern Ontario, ENWIN Utilities Ltd. (ENWIN) experienced multiple electrical outages, affecting approximately 20,000 customers across our service area.

Although outages were noted across the City, the region’s areas that were most affected were the South Windsor, Sandwich, Riverside, and Pillette communities.

Outages were caused by a variety of issues. However, branches and trees across power lines were the primary cause.

ENWIN says teams worked throughout the night, removing line obstructions, and restoring feeders, returning power to the majority of customers. However, isolated pockets remain affected.

ENWIN says they are committed to restoring service to those areas in a safe and timely manner. Currently, there are approximately 1000, customers remaining without power and crews will continue to work until these issues are resolved.

ENWIN reminds their customers to avoid downed power lines and anything with which they may come in contact, such as puddles of water and fences. Please call ENWIN at 519-255-2727 to report a downed power line.

ENWIN says they are aware of all remaining neighbourhood outages, and kindly ask that phone lines be kept open so that emergency calls may be able to come through.
