    Last nights pole fire and pole replacement in Shelly Bay area at 7.20pm took BELCO 3 hours to restore power. Not a good start not knowing how long it would take with fresh food stocked in the fridge. Seems they are still using outdated equipment.

    No need to worry. It was a low level outage.

    World class supply. Just ask the RA. Only place in the world that has more unreliable power after a brand new power plant is built. Blackout, brown outs, load sheds, pole fires. Must be all the load from covid……..not. Do we get a discount for lack of service ?
