LUCELEC Trough System Update


St. Lucia Electricity Services Limited (LUCELEC) crews are working to restore service to a number of customers following a trough system on Sunday, November 6, 2022.

The Union substation was automatically interrupted at 2:09 p.m. resulting in loss of service to a number of areas including Union, Babonneau, Monchy, Corinth, Vide Bouteille, Sunny Acres, Cacao, Forestierre, Marisule, Bois d’Orange, Grande-Riviere, Monier, Trou Rouge and East Winds.

The company is also aware of poles at Dephon, Babonneau and Bonne Terre that have been compromised due to flooding and landslide.

While severe flooding has delayed our ability to respond as quickly and safely as we would like, LUCELEC crews and contractors are continuing to work to restore power to affected customers.

Customers can call the following numbers to report localised faults: 452-2165 from Cap Estate to Dennery and 454-6617 from Praslin to Bouton.

LUCELEC apologises to its customers for the inconvenience caused by the outages and thanks them for their patience and understanding.

  1. I have actually visited the beautiful island of St Lucia in about 1972 when I was a teenager. I have lived in Montserrat in the British West Indies when my family moved to the islands while my late father was working with CIDA designing the new water supply system for the island

  2. Thanks for your kind comment, and thanks for keeping in touch with us Lucians! Best wishes to you.

  3. Thanks for being informative. Wish the other service providers did the same. Nothing from WASCO, Flow.

  4. Wasco will never do Such .Worst public utility Company in St.Lucia Followed by Flow.Wasco is infested with Ignorant workers .Untidy appearance .Rum Drinkers and Destroying public Roads to repair pipes over and over Again .Last on the list is that no one answeres the phone when you call to make a report whether by day or night

  5. We need to have two options for electricity in Saint Lucia. Not one monopoly crap diversity in renewables energy. The diesel generator is outdated and keeps our bills very expensive. Let Saint Lucia be smart and have future vision. That other islands can imitate for better.
