BEL's Unplanned Power Outage – Placencia & Independence

"Belize Electricity Limited (BEL) advises its customers in the Stann Creek District that the Company is evaluating lightning damages to the main transformer at the Independence Substation which resulted in an unplanned power outage earlier this morning. 

At 12:25 a.m. today, power supply was lost to a portion of Placencia and Independence which includes the area from Turtle Inn to Placencia Fishermen Co-op, Malacate and Noralez Area.

BEL crews are currently working to determine repairs needed for equipment at the Independence Substation. BEL will advise customers as soon as a projected restoration time for power supply is determined.

BEL apologizes for the inconvenience caused and assures customers that the Company will restore power supply to the affected areas in Placencia and Independence soon as possible."
