EXPECT power outages on Monday, August 22, 2022.

The Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC) on Sunday advised customers that construction of a critical bypass transmission line in Rousillac will be completed today and may require an emergency outage to install the last poles and lines.


The bypass line will allow T&TEC to remove a compromised 220 kV (220,000 volts) transmission tower which was damaged as a result of a landslide last Tuesday causing 30% of the population to be without electricity for hours.


If required, approximately 15,000 customers in south and central Trinidad may experience an outage between one to two hours, from 2 pm today, T&TEC stated.
