Hurricane Sandy – GBPC in State of Readiness

October 25, 2012

Grand Bahama Power Company wishes to advise our customers that we are in a state of readiness as we continue to monitor the storm approaching Grand Bahama.

Grand Bahama Power Company wishes to inform that we will not be performing a planned shutdown of our systems. We will continue to provide power to our customers as long as wind speeds and safe operations allow.   However, should we lose our system during the storm; we will not be able to restore it until it is safe to do so.

Due to the predicted high wind gusts associated with Hurricane Sandy, we are aware that customers will be experiencing storm related outages.  Once the storm is underway, in order to safeguard our staff, we will be unable to respond to any outages until after the storm passes.  Immediately after NEMA issues the all clear and we begin our assessment and restoration efforts, we will provide regular updates and estimated restoration times and information as available.

We are watching the forecasts carefully and will continue to make regular updates via the local radio stations and on our website www.gb-power.com

Grand Bahama Power Company urges our customers to remain focused on ensuring they are well prepared and have taken the necessary precautions. Please exercise extreme caution and prudence in preparation for the storm.
