Momentary Outages

Oct 25, 2019

To our valued customers:

Ottawa River Power Corporation (ORPC) would like to acknowledge and apologize for the inconveniences caused by the increase in power interruptions to the City of Pembroke in recent months. We recognize that any outage is an inconvenience and are committed to ensuring our customers have service they can depend on.

While the primary cause of the outages is under investigation, we requested Hydro One and Brookfield to help with short-term mitigation measures that we could implement immediately. We have come together collaboratively to work with Hydro One and Brookfield to improve the reliability of supply and are in the process of implementing these measures together.

We want to sincerely thank our customers for their patience and continued support throughout this process. ORPC is committed to increasing the reliability of the distribution system and will continue to work in partnership with our energy suppliers to mitigate disruptions.

Notice of Change to Conditions of Service Document

Apr 29, 2019

The Distribution System Code requires that every distributor produce its own “Conditions of Service” document.  The purpose of this document is to provide a means of communicating the types and level of service available to the customers within the distributor’s service territory.

The current version of the Conditions of Service was published in 2017.  Since then, various changes to regulations and codes that govern Distributor activities have come into effect, which in turn require updates to the original document.

The revised document is available to view on our web site as well as information on how to obtain a physical copy, this information can be found on  our Conditions of Service page.

The public is invited to make written comments on the revisions.  Comments will be accepted until July 31st 2019. Please direct all written comments to:
