(CNS): Around 10,000 CUC customers across George Town, West Bay and Savannah were without electricity Wednesday morning for as much as an hour. Officials from the power company said it was caused by three units being tripped, as they offered apologies to those who were impacted by the technical fault.

    CUC does not have a good name when it come to reliability. I wouldn’t have a hard time paying their high prices if the service was reliable but to be provided crappy service at high prices just because you are a monopoly you can, is not right..

    This company is the only one I know on island that is a monopoly and is “guaranteed” a profit by the Cayman Islands Government but is not held to any good standard..

    Nice, all of Cardinal Ave in the dark on one of our busiest cruise days. Shockingly embarrassing for Cayman. Tourists think we are are a third world country with this crap. We pay insane prices for electricity services. This was and is unacceptable.

      Get a good surge suppressor or mini-UPS. This could happen due to a vehicle hitting a pole near your house. Think the driver is going to compensate you?
