With the source of the weekend’s North Slave hydro power outages identified, attention shifts to the question of why diesel didn’t take over.
Late on Sunday evening, the NWT Power Corporation said electricity had been restored in Yellowknife and Edzo after line crews removed fallen trees from sections of power line running from the Snare hydro system.
Those trees had been the primary cause of six separate outages in Yellowknife over 24 hours, but the city’s self-contained power grid is designed to avoid a hydro failure developing into that kind of sustained problem.
