Planned BC Hydro Power Interruption, Sunday, August 12, 2012, 10:00am to 2:00 pm

As part of the Columbia Valley Transmission Project, BC Hydro will be completing transmission line relocation work at the Golden Substation.

In order to complete the work and to ensure the safety of work crews, it will be necessary to interrupt electrical service for approximately 4 hours, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. MDT on Sunday, August 12, 2012

The areas affected will be all of Golden and surrounding area, as well as the community of Field.

To prepare for this interruption and protect your equipment from damage, BC Hydro is urging customers to unplug all electronics, such as TVs, PVRs, DVD players and computers. They also advice residents to turn off all lights, electric heaters and major appliances, such as your clothes or dishwasher, dryer or oven.

For the first hour after the power comes back on, please plug in or turn on only what you really need. This will help ensure the electrical system does not get overloaded.

BC Hydro are sorry for the inconvenience and will restore your power as soon as they can. Prepare for outages and stay informed by visiting or from your handheld device. Please call 1 888 POWERON (1 888 769 3766) if you experience any electrical difficulties or for more information.
