One of the Independent power producers units tripped causing issues with 64 circuits which went down leaving thousands without an electricity supply. 22 percent of the country was affected. This according to T&TEC General Manager Kelvin Ramsook speaking on Power 102 regarding outages in several areas last night. Outages occured from 9:30pm with resumption of services getting back on line from as early as 9:45. On T&TECs system there is 400 megawatts of available power which has redundancies built in to ensure a stable supply.
Mr. Ramsook said power has been restored in all areas and T&TEC by 10:00pm . The Commission is investigating the cause of the outages. There was also an unrelated issue in Sangre Grande.
