Electricity to be Affected for Maintenance Work

This, the corporation has explained has become necessary to allow their technicians to undertake major maintenance work.

In the areas that will affected the electricity will be off from 8:30 am to 4:00pm.

On Tuesday 27th September the areas that will be affected are Westbourne Ghaut and Farms Housing Project.

On Wednesday power will be off at Wades Garden and Farms Housing once more.

Once again on Thursday Wades Garden will be interrupted and also will Palmetto Point.

Friday’s power supply will be off on the Cayon Feeder, disturbing users from St. Pauls to Sir Gillies and also Fry’s Village.

The electricity company has however warned customers that power may be returned at any time without warning.

From August 2011, the management and of electricity in St. Kitts was handed over to a government statutory corporation, headed by a Board thereby replacing the old structure that saw a department in charge of the operations.

One thing that has not changed however is the constant disruption of services to residents in all parts of the island. The outages are have become a norm but most unacceptable to residents who have complained that they are extremely fed up with the poor quality and unreliable service.

Customers have also complained about the losses caused by damages to their household appliances and despite a commitment some years ago by the government, no compensation has been forthcoming.

In most cases the outages occur without any semblance of warning to residents; another concern that they have expressed publicly in the media.

However, the company has tried to explain that getting information and explanation to the media is often complicated
