'Plant Disruption' caused outages


A 'plant disruption' is reportedly the cause of the widespread power outage experienced on Monday (Dec 28th), according to T&TEC. 

Many persons affected took to social media to vent on the inconveniences caused and called on the Electricity Commission to shed some light, so to speak, on the situation.   

While there are reports that the outage lasted less than an hour in some areas, for others it lasted a bit longer. 

According to reports there was a disturbance at the Trinidad Generation Unlimited (TGU) plant in La Brea which triggered automatic load shedding which in turn affected the supply to some areas, as far as Westmoorings, Arima and Fyzabad.
