AJAX, ON — May 21, 2022 – Today’s severe thunderstorm has caused extensive damage to Elexicon Energy’s distribution system. Approximately 60,000 customers are without power in the communities of Ajax, Belleville, Bowmanville, Pickering, Uxbridge and Whitby.
Elexicon Energy crews, system operators and arborists are working hard to restore power as quickly and as safely as possible. Progress has been slow but Elexicon Energy’s Power Restoration Team is doing everything they can to restore power. Despite our very best efforts, we expect some customers could be without power overnight.
Elexicon Energy is encouraging customers without power to, if they can, reach out to family or a friend during this very difficult time to make any necessary arrangements until their power is restored.
