*Updated 12PM - T&TEC Urgent Customer Advisory
May 11, 2016: The Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC) is aware of a problem being experienced by the Trinidad Generation Unlimited (TGU) at its Plant in La Brea, which has resulted in a loss of electricity supply to customers in the West, East, Central and South Trinidad.
The electricity supply has been restored to most customers in West Trinidad and we expect all other affected customers to have their supply restored in approximately two hours. T&TEC extends its apologies to customers for any inconvenience caused as a result of today’s outage.
12PM Update to above article:
As work continues to restore supply to customers affected by a problem at the Trinidad Generation Unlimited (TGU) Plant in La Brea, T&TEC is urging customers who are on supply to reduce consumption in order to speed up the restoration process. This can be done by turning off non-essential appliances/ equipment, for example AC units, dryers or heavy equipment.
Reduced consumption will assist the Commission in managing the load demand, for distribution to more areas.
