CUC crews working to reconnect customers Thursday evening

(CNS): CUC said that an outage at one of the substations on Thursday evening impacted more than 6,000 customers in West Bay, who were all left without power for around an hour. The outage appeared to cause a number of small explosions around the district and brought down several electricity lines. CUC said that crews were out to attend to those lines in a matter of minutes to begin reconnecting the supply.

    Despite all the grumblings about CUC bills, I hope Cayman’s residents will acknowledge that, with CUC, we get what we pay for.

    We pay premium rates BUT we get premium service – every time!! Compare the standard of our power supply with that of neighbouring countries, Jamaica, Honduras, etc. and CUC excels!!

    Thank you CUC!!!

      Premium service would include better reliability and better preventative maintenance. But that costs money meaning profit reduction. Electricity is essential in this modern day, especially for a major finance hub. While you laud reaction times, the aim is to have less of them.

      True. With most other Caribbean countries rolling blackouts are the norm.

      CUC May have its faults, no pun intended, but they do a great job.

      Complete rubbish.
      Power companies make money on kWH used. If the power is out, then they are not making money.
      No redundancy, all the eggs in one basket, absolute rip off.

    Great response from CUC to get the issue resolved quickly. I saw the line guys working on this in the rain, wind and darkness.

      So you were amazed and impressed that they were simply doing their job?

      I sure hope that this isn’t a commentary on the Caymanian work ethic.
