This year’s IPM will run from Sept. 17 to 21. Crews are finalizing the installation of approximately 325 poles, 80 transformers and 19 km of wire.
“IPM allows us to support our farming customers’ largest annual event and celebrate the economic benefits they provide to the province, while also offering a valuable training opportunity for our apprentices,” explains Jason Fitzsimmons, chief corporate affairs and customer care officer for Hydro One.
The electricity transmission and distribution provider will also set up interactive displays at an event booth, where visitors can try on safety equipment, learn to identify common household hazards and participate in hands-on activities. Crews will also provide live on-site demonstrations of the tasks they handle in the field.
