After receiving a number of complaints from consumers, SKELEC issued a statement in the media today, explaining that they were aware that there were some consumers in the Frigate Bay area who were without electricity, due to an issue in the field.
“Our technicians are already working on the problem and the power will be restored as soon as that issue is rectified. We would like to apologize to all consumers who have been affected by this interruption. SKELEC thanks them for their understanding,” said an official.
Other areas of St. Kitts, some between Cayon and Tabernacle also reported disruption of supply but the SKELEC officials also gave the assurance that their teams were working to rectify all problems. Similar disruptions in service were reported by consumers on Wednesday.
Thursday’s loss of electricity supply also affected the cable television, with residents complaining of the unavailability of the service from the morning period into the late afternoon, in the Frigate district.
