Current Outages

Guelph Hydro customers are served by one of the most reliable electrical systems in Ontario. However, when power outages occur as a result of an upstream loss of power, severe weather, equipment failure, tree contact, wildlife interference or vehicle accidents, we work hard to restore service as quickly as possble.
