Last night, PUC Services Inc. received a call for assistance for Sudbury Hydro after a powerful thunderstorm rolled through the city. About 4,000 Greater Sudbury Hydro customers lost power during the storm, and a majority were without power through the night and into Tuesday morning. In response to the call, early this morning PUC dispatched 2 bucket trucks and 2 two-person service crews to aid in the restoration effort.
“Sharing resources like this is something that happens all the time in the wake of major weather events,” says, Giordan Zin, PUC Supervisor of Customer Engagement. “In fact, Sault Ste. Marie isn’t the only utility sending help, North Bay Hydro and Lakeland Hydro are both sending crews and equipment to assist.”
“I am proud of our team here at PUC Services for lending their knowledge and expertise in a time of need”, says, Rob Brewer, PUC President and CEO. “Our neighbours needed our help, and our team stepped up right away to do what they could.”
Restoration efforts are still ongoing, PUC crews are expected to remain in Sudbury for the remainder of the week.
