Below are answers to questions about the recent power outages, and Nova Scotia Power's contract with the Town of Lunenburg. Thank you to NSPI for the information.
What are some of the causes of power outages?
Many outages are caused by weather events, and the biggest cause is trees and branches contacting power lines, usually from strong winds. Outages can also be caused by lightning strikes, heavy snow or ice buildup on lines and equipment, high winds, hurricanes or other extreme weather conditions.
