The Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC) confirmed that power has been restored to Tobago residents who experienced outages due to Tropical Storm Karen. This press release follows an update yesterday which confirmed news of 100% restoration of power to those affected in Trinidad.
The release continues:
“With a more reports coming in on Tuesday, the total number of reports logged was 150. 148 of those reports were completed and closed. In addition to the remaining two, crews will, today, attend to any issues that required secondary work. On Tuesday afternoon supply was restored to all outstanding customers along the Northside Road, as well as those in Campelton, Lanse Fourmi and Hermitage. WASA’s water treatment plants at Highlands Road, Moriah and Kings Bay were included in those customers.
T&TEC apologises for inconveniences experienced by customers during the entire restoration process and thanks them for their understanding. The repair and/or installation of poles and overhead lines are labour intensive and, in this instance, also required the clearing of debris and fallen trees, and working in challenging terrain in some areas.
This is the final update on T&TEC’s restoration work”.
