Power outages in Barbados getting worse


BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — Naked,  the government sold ALL the people’s shares in the Light and Power utility to the Canadian company,  EMERA.  Now Barbadians have no say.  They must be really proud of their dumb ministers!

Emera boasts about how much money THEY (not the customers) save, yet THEIR service seems to be getting worse.  Bajans are paying for power, not power outages and piss poor service.

Work harder to provide the people with the service they PAY for and boast less!

It’s said before 6:00 a.m. this morning there was an outage that only returned 10 minutes ago (over four hours) and the company still does not know what caused it.

There was a time the island had one maybe two outages a year and none lasting more than 1 hour or less; to date there have been at least four outages for too many hours at a time.

Let’s see the PR spin they put on their incompetence!   Anonymous – Well Well & Consequences

How does this affect restaurant foods and other cold storage goods/items that may not have backup generators?  How does this affect office workers and the down time which equates to non productivity which has a dollar amount attached to it?  One might guess that the hospital and other health facilities would have backup power systems….  Naked Departure
