With increasing concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak within our province, Battle River Power Coop is adding precautions to our already diligent practices to ensure continuity in our power distribution.

Battle River Power Coop will remain open for business during this period of uncertainty. Our Pandemic Continuity Plan is implemented, and we are taking precautionary measures to ensure the health and well-being of our staff, members and families.

As a utility, we will continue to monitor the situation closely and are prepared to respond rapidly to the changing nature of this pandemic. Should the need arise, essential staff and management are able to work remotely.

Our staff are available to connect with you by phone or email if you need us. We wish to minimize person to person exposure and are following the social distancing recommendations set forth by our pandemic plan and government guidance. Members are reminded that bill payment is easily accomplished through Canada Post, by phoning the office to use a credit card, or by setting up an online account through this link: https://www.brpower.coop/members/on-line-account-set-up/

Battle River Power Coop has instituted rigorous cleaning protocols in every office to ensure a safe environment for our staff. We are monitoring Health Canada recommendations around workplace wellness and safety.

To limit the potential impact of COVID-19, Battle River Power Coop has instructed staff to stay home if exhibiting any flu or cold like symptoms. We have mandated self-isolation for any team member that has travelled internationally, is showing symptoms, or who has reason to believe they have been exposed. We are also deferring attending social events and large meetings at this time.

Clear communication plays a critical role during these challenging times, and Battle River Power Coop is committed to ongoing communications as the situation evolves.

We greatly value our staff, members and families and will do our utmost to ensure and protect the ongoing delivery of energy to our membership.
