(CNS): Following the more than five-hour blackout across Grand Cayman through Thursday and Friday night, there were more sporadic and localised cuts in the power supply on Friday and Saturday. In its last annual report CUC, Grand Cayman’s electricity supplier, continues to report a more than 99.97% reliability of supply but there have been several major blackouts across Grand Cayman this year caused by a variety of issues, from explosions to “spurious faults” on the transmission line.
Commentors on the CNS website following the overnight blackout also suggested the power outage lasted much longer. While some of those contributing to the online debate said Cayman should be grateful for its electricity supply, others raised concerns about the number of and length of power interruptions giving the price people pay for their electricity.
