Beaverbrook Cable Renewal Project Update

Sharing an update received from Hydro Ottawa:

Over the course of the next week, cable replacements followed by service transfers will be completed that will impact residents on Varley Drive, Carr Crescent and Carr Place. Below is a list of all current scheduled power outages to take place as part of this project.

In the current environment, we recognize that any construction activities and power outages can be very disruptive. Our goal with this work is to maintain the electricity system so we can prevent larger and longer unplanned outages from occurring in the future.

In an effort to minimize the impact of longer outages required during cable replacement work specifically, Hydro Ottawa has launched a Battery Loan Pilot Program, where impacted residents will have the opportunity to register to receive a loaner battery pack for the day of their scheduled outage. This battery pack will allow them to power smaller electronic devices in their home including: cell phones, laptops, tablets, etc. allowing them to have uninterrupted service for work, schooling and other requirements.

We invite you to review the program information and registration process at

Please note that all impacted residents will also receive a hardcopy of this information delivered to their home, along with the notice of the planned power outage, as well as being notified of the outage by phone, text and/or email.

Our qualified staff and contractors will conduct this work safely and efficiently, ensuring that any inconvenience is minimal.
