T&TEC is asking its customers in Tobago to conserve electricity from midnight Monday, June 4th till 7.00 a.m.
According to a press release issued today, this is to facilitate the Commission de-energises two machines at the Cove Power Station, to extend the grid for the connection of a new generator in the final phase of the ongoing expansion project.
T&TEC said as a precaution against excessive load demand on the system, they are appealing to customers to conserve electricity by minimising the use of non-essential appliances and equipment from midnight.
Customers in John Dial, Hope, Lambeau, Courland, Marys Hill, Mt Pleasant, Black Rock and part of Gleneagles Drive will be served by mobile generators during this period and will experience momentary outages when generators are being installed and removed.
Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon. Keith Rowley and Chief Secretary, the Hon. Kelvin Charles, turned the sod for the expansion of the Cove Power Station last November.
The project is on schedule to be completed by July.
T&TEC apologised for any inconvenience that may be caused to customers during this period.
