T&TEC GM: Power fully restored

Roughly 22 per cent of the country was affected by the major power outages last night.

Around 9 pm on Tuesday, several parts of central and south Trinidad experienced a blackout. 

However, electricity was restored in affected areas, just after 10 pm.

General Manager at the Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC), Kelvin Ramsook, explains that the source of the problem was with one of their independent power producers, Trinidad Generation Unlimited (TGU), which had an issue with one of its generators in La Brea.
