SaskPower has launched a new online tool that they hope will make it easier for customers to receive status updates and estimated restore times during power outages.
The outage map aims to give customers an easy to use way to get information on outages across the province.
The same information that is provided on the crowns Twitter account and mobile app will also appear on the map, which is currently only available on SaskPower’s website, but will be launched on the mobile app in July.
“We’ve piloted the outage map over the last few weeks and have been really happy with the feedback we’ve received,” said Acting Vice-president of Distribution and Customer Services Nidal Dabghi in a news release. “SaskPower is always on the lookout for new ways to get information to our customers. Through the new map, a customer can see status updates on current outages in their neighborhood, including estimated restoration times, and also get information on upcoming planned outages as SaskPower works to improve the electrical system.”
