‚ÄčFrom March 2016 to March 2017, we will be replacing existing power equipment including above ground power cables/transformers and power poles in the Fulton Place & Capilano neighborhood. These assets are reaching the end of their lifecycle and need to be switched out. Doing this will enable us to continue to provide you with safe and reliable power service.
