ENMAX Power Corporation takes pride in providing a reliable power system in Calgary. To maintain and improve reliability, we employ a number of systems and technologies.
Automated distribution switches are one piece of technology that we have been using for several years to improve reliability in Calgary. These are installed on distribution lines in areas of the city that have experienced reoccurring electrical faults.
Automated distribution switches automatically isolate faults, and reduce the number of customers affected. In some cases this can reduce the number of customers impacted by an outage from thousands to hundreds.
This technology often helps reduce the duration of outages, from more than thirty minutes to less than one minute.
Customers are free to purchase natural gas services or electricity services from a retailer of their choice. For a list of retailers, visit ucahelps.alberta.ca or call 310-4822 (toll free in Alberta).
