Q: The electrical outlet in my Z area lot is not working.
A: The electrical outlets are an Intelligent Parking Lot Controller (IPLC) and have two lights, green and red, that will indicate if the outlet is working or if there is a problem. For what the lights indicate, please see below:

  • Flashing Green Light: this flashing green indicates that the outlet currently has power and you can plug in safely.
  • Solid Green Light: when the green light changes to solid, it indicates you have successfully plugged into the IPLC and your vehicle is receiving power through your extension cord.
  • Flashing Red Light: if the light changes from green to flashing red, this will indicate you have plugged in but no power is being sent to your vehicle due to a short circuit in your wiring or you have exceeded the wattage limits of the outlet (15 amps).
  • Solid Red Light: if the light on the outlet is a solid red, no power is being sent to your vehicle because the IPLC outlet is faulty. Please contact Parking Services at 306-585-5555 or Work Control at 306-585-4039 with the IPLC post number and report the situation.
    • Please Note: If the light changes to a flashing or solid red when you plug in, do not leave the cord inserted as it will cause all adjacent outlets on the same circuit to be without power.
