BREAKING NEWS: PRIME MINISTER ISSUES STATEMENT ON BLACKOUT

THE Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC) has appealed to customers in Trinidad to conserve electricity this weekend, while the National Gas Company (NGC) carries out expansion work on its network.

In a public notice yesterday, the commission said NGC’s work is scheduled for tomorrow (December 8), between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. and could affect NGC’s supply of gas to the Trinidad Generation Unlimited (TGU) Power Station.

“In the unlikely event that the work does affect the gas supply, there may be a temporary loss of electricity across Trinidad,” the Commission stated.

As a precaution, T&TEC is appealing to customers to minimise the use of “non-essential, high-energy appliances and equipment, such as air-conditioning units, dryers and water heaters, to reduce the risk of load shedding on Sunday”.

The commission has apologised for any inconvenience caused to customers during that period.
