Summerlanders will be in the dark this weekend during a community-wide power outage on Sunday morning.
The power outage, from 12:01 to 6 a.m., is for required equipment upgrades.
Linda Tynan, chief administrative officer for the municipality, said the upgrade work was scheduled to have the least impact on the community.
“Lots of the bigger businesses have generators so they can continue operating,” she said, “but it’s never a convenient time.”
Residents are urged to prepare for the outage by having a flashlight nearby and backup alarm clocks.
Additional information about the June 17 power outage will be posted on the municipality’s website at summerland.ca and on the municipality’s Facebook page at facebook.com/SummerlandBC.
