Thursday, September 17, 2015. BMG: Belize Electricity Limited (BEL) has released a statement explaining what caused the two power outages that affected the country last night at 7:20 p.m. and again at 8:35 p.m.
It states that ongoing inclement weather in Yucatan, Mexico caused faults at one of Comision Federal de Electricidad’s (CFE) substations and as a result, system trips occurred.
Although both outages lasted less than 20 minutes, CFE has put plans in place to resolve maintenance issues and minimize future interruptions by this weekend.
BEL assures customers that the company will continue to work along with its suppliers to restore the system to its normal reliable state.
