The Guyana Power and Light (GPL) Technical Team is working to ascertain the root cause of a power outage that affected several villages along eastern and western Demerara yesterday afternoon.

Preliminary reports indicate that the submarine cable which links the Vreed-en-Hoop, West Demerara, and Kingston, Georgetown, Power plants tripped on a fault causing a total shutdown of the Demerara-Berbice Interconnected System (DBIS).

Power restoration efforts commenced immediately with the first area being repowered at 15 minutes later. Incremental restoration continued, and all circuits were repowered at approximately 9pm.
