FortisBC is planning two outages during the early morning hours of Sunday, May 4.
The power will be turned off for almost 2,000 customers in Kelowna and Naramata during that time.
Residents living from Pandosy Street east to Grenfell Road and Coopland Crescent north to Guisachan Road will be affected from 5:30-7:30 a.m.
In Naramata, the outage will last from 5-9 a.m. as crews conduct some maintenance on the power lines.
FortisBC says customers should follow these tips:
- Protect your electronics, such as TVs, PVRs and computers, by using surge-protecting power bars.
- Conserve cell phone batteries.
- If you have an electric garage door opener, locate the manual release lever and learn how to operate it.
