I betcha the Premiers residence or Nalcor exec's homes have not been affected by these ever increasing outages...or maybe their all gone to warmer climes celebrating their Muskrat falls windfalls.

How about promoting efficient heating and hot water systems which uses less than half the electricity, and also saves the consumers money. Nothing in TAKE CHARGE or TURN THE TIDE websites on this.

Third world power system? Hard to believe that they depend on all their units with no contingency/reserve generation. What about future load growth? Such as the Long Harbour plant which will require about 100Mw's. Even with the Lower Churchill they will still need a source of backup power in the case of a transmission line shutdown or trip, its a long distance to send power and underwater too . They need to build a thermal power plant now, or at the very least some bigger combustion turbine generators for backup.

It's HOLYROOD, not HOLLYROOD. Hey! Maybe that's the hangup: the parts to fix the generator were being couriered to HOLLYROOD... THAT"S why everything is still broken.

Seriously?? Asking the public to conserve power?? Are we living in a 3rd world country? We pay enough for the power. It has become unreliable lately.

I understand how these companies can ask customer not to use washer, dryers and the use of hot water, but how can they ask us to ruduce our heat in as they say EXTREME cold weather. Hydro should conserve power also by turning out all the lights and turning down the heat in their building in which nobody is in during the weekend. I'm sure if you drove by the building you would see the lights on every floor lit. They should practice what they preach. There are other building that are closed every weekend that lights should be turned off City Hall and Conferderation Building!!!
