Public Input Sought on Kingston Hydro’s Electricity Plans

Published on: 2019/07/03 - in News

Between now and July 17, Kingston Hydro and Utilities Kingston are giving the public an opportunity to provide feedback on electricity plans through a short survey.

The survey link can be found at Utilities Kingston’s “Have a Say” page, which also features a five-minute video that provides a glimpse at rarely seen infrastructure, including underground downtown transformer vaults and the inside of Substation #1 at King and Queen streets.

According to a City release, the video offers “an overview of the proposed areas of focus, starting in 2021, to improve the safety and reliability of the Kingston Hydro electricity distribution system, while reducing the number of power outages to customers in central Kingston.”

This survey is the latest opportunity Utilities Kingston has extended to customers interested in providing feedback on the reliability of the Kingston Hydro electricity distribution system and future Utilities Kingston spending decisions.

Kingston Hydro’s electricity distribution area is operated by the employees of Utilities Kingston. Its five-year electricity distribution plan will help determine the company’s priorities and rates beginning in 2021 and will be submitted to the Ontario Energy Board. All feedback provided through this engagement will be included with the application.
