Island Wide Interruption in Power

February 29, 2012

The Grand Bahama Power Company wishes to apologize to the public for the island wide interruption in power that occurred yesterday.  Our investigation into the occurrence revealed that the interruption was the result of damage to parts of our transmission line, specifically two severely damaged insulators, a burnt pole ground, and charring of the pole at the pole band. Witnesses who reported the event informed us of severe weather in the vicinity just prior to the event. Thanks to the quick response and hard work of our employees, power was restored to all customers in approximately three (3) hours.
