Hydro Ottawa is reporting a major power outage in Nepean. Hydro One is also reporting significant outages to the west and south of Hydro Ottawa territory.


The utility company said just after 12:45 p.m. that 27,000 customers were without electricity in an area bordered by the 416 in the west, the Ottawa River in the north, West Hunt Club Road in the south and Merivale Road in the west.


Hydro Ottawa says a loss of supply from the provincial grid is to blame for the outage.


“We are working with Hydro One to ensure power is restored as quickly & safely as possible,” Hydro Ottawa said in a tweet.


The estimated time of restoration is 6:30 p.m. for most customers, but some estimates are as late as 4:30 a.m. Sunday. 


Hydro Ottawa said crews were performing emergency switching to get power back to as many people as possible while the utility waits for the provincial supply to return. By 2:45 p.m., about 4,600 customers remained without power.

More than 2,300 customers in Greely are also without power. Their estimated time of restoration is 3 p.m.
