The Ridge, Maliboo Reef & South Bahamia require detailed inspections of all lines and poles to identify and correct the root cause of their issue. Maliboo Reef and the surrounding areas that have been experiencing a prolonged outage prior to the storm is a priority for crews tomorrow. An update will be given on this by 2PM.

Caravel Beach & Imperial Park are without power as a result of tornadic activity and poles needing to be replaced.
Eight Mile Rock & West End substations require a water washing procedure to ensure that all salt intrusion is removed. This will begin tomorrow morning.

We attempted to energize Coral Road, Coral Reef and Gambier Loop, there is a fault on the system that requires an inspection by crews.

Further updates will be given as they become available.
If your area is listed as energized and you are without power, you are experiencing an isolated outage. Call us at 352-8411 or toll-free at 300-4826 so we can address your issue.

Please take the time to ensure your home is safe to energize. If you are using a generator, make sure you are using a transfer switch and your main breaker is disconnected.
