Current Outage Map

View current outages in Cambridge and North Dumfries.

The map displays outages in Cambridge and North Dumfries. We are working to expand the outage map to County of Brant by late 2016. For privacy, outages affecting less than 3 customers will not display. Outages will only display once the outage management system confirms the outage and location. Updates will be provided as new information is known.

In severe power emergencies, we provide progress updates on Twitter @EnergyPlusInc and Facebook.

What Causes a Power Outage?

Power outages can be caused by the loss of the electricity supply to our community, equipment failure, weather conditions, tree contact, wildlife interference, or vehicle accidents. Energy+ emergency crews are sent out rapidly to make repairs and restore power to customers. More information on how power is restored to our customers

Stay Safe During an Outage

Here are some tips to help keep you and your loved ones safe when the power goes out, as well as how to prepare if you have to leave your home due to flooding.

Portable home generators can be useful during a power outage but they can also be very dangerous if they are not used properly.

Planned Outages

Energy+ supplies electric service across 306 square kilometres of overhead wires and underground cables to 62,500 customers, in the City of Cambridge, the Township of North Dumfries and the County of Brant.

When it is necessary for Energy+ to interrupt service to our customers to maintain or upgrade the system, we try to provide our customers with advance notice by letter or verbal communication (for planned outages that are expected to last more than one hour). Have your name added to the list of customers who rely on medical equipment that requires electricity.
