Several parts of Trinidad without electricity

The Trinidad and Tobago Electrical Commission (T&TEC) is working to restore power to several parts of the country after outages were reported this morning.

In a statement, the Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC) said at approximately 9am it experienced a fault on its system stemming from an apparent problem at one of the generating plants.

As a result, it said there was automatic shedding of load across Trinidad and several areas are currently without an electricity supply.

Some of the affected areas include: San Francique, Beetham, Santa Cruz, Penco Lands, Cumuto, St Joseph, Arima, Toco, Tacarigua, Diego Martin, West Moorings, San Raphael and Penal.

Tobago is unaffected.

The Commission added it is speaking with the power producer to determine the nature of the issue and the time for restoration.
