How is power restoration prioritised after cyclones?
Restoration decisions are based on the number of customers served
by a particular device. We restore power to devices serving
the most customers first. The specific prioritization order
is as follows:
are restored first, as they typically serve 1500 - 3000 customers.
Tap lines are restored next, as they typically serve 25 -
Individual transformers are the last devices restored as they
only serve three customers on average. The cause of a customer's
outage will help determine the order in which their power
will be restored, as detailed above.
Why do a few customers have power, while their neighbors remain
Customers in the same neighborhood
may be served from separate feeders. These feeders may be
more severely damaged than the ones serving their neighbours'
NOTE: Not seeing a crew does not mean a customer's
situation is not being addressed. In outage situations, crews
are diligently working to cut trees and restore lines and
it is sometimes the case that power can be restored to areas
without customers actually seeing a crew. If you notice damage
to the meter base, that damage must be repaired before APCPDCL's line and service staff can restore power to the
home. An electrician will be needed to make the repairs.
Why are customers experiencing momentary restoration, followed
by another outage?
Crews have restored power repeatedly
to some areas because trees and tree limbs continue falling
into lines, causing wide fluctuations in the number of customers
