Power restored to all of P.E.I.
Crews 'happy and relieved,' says Maritime Electric spokeswoman
Power has finally been restored everywhere on P.E.I., say Maritime Electric officials.
Some customers had been without power for several days following this week's blizzard.
The electricity came back on before midnight for the last customers the utility had to reach.
- 2-day power loss forces Wellington Co-op to dump food
- Valleyfield man without power for over 80 hours
- No electricity for 33 hours
- Power out for thousands on P.E.I.
"Well I think our crews were very, very relieved last night. They were, I think, feeling a little bit down in terms of just access issues, trying to get places," said Maritime Electric spokeswoman, Kim Griffin.
"But I think they are feeling very, very happy and relieved today. And for the next couple of weeks we are going to spend time on restoration and cleanup after the storm."
It will likely be another week or so before the cost of all those repairs is known, said Griffin.
