Power outages

Inuvik’s power grid has been failing lately. We had an outage this week that lasted from 8pm to about midnight.

Last month there was a 10-hour outage followed by a power surge which fried some electronic equipment. (the power corp compensated people)

Inuvik gets all of its electricity from natural gas-powered generators and diesel-owered ones for backup.

  1. Oh, that’s too bad, with such a low temperatures people really need electricity there… I hope there will be a solution for that problem really soon… but I have to say, that picture is really funny in a nice way… 🙂
