Thousands Lose Power Briefly

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Saturday, September 16, 2017

Thousands were left without power in Newfoundland briefly this morning.

Many Newfoundland Power customers across the Island lost power after a “underfrequency” event occured.

Newfoundland Power experienced a loss of supply from Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro.

The purpose of Under Frequency Load Shedding (UFLS) is to balance generation and load when an event causes a significant drop in frequency of an interconnection or islanded area.
