LUCELEC Trough System Update #2


 St. Lucia Electricity Services Limited (LUCELEC) restored service to 99% of all customers in the North when Forestiere was energized at 12:39 a.m. on Monday, November 7, 2022.

Service restoration following the passage of a trough system on Sunday, November 6, began at 3:42 p.m. LUCELEC Technical crews and contractors are currently working to restore service to the small section of Balata that remains without power.

The LUCELEC Union substation was severely impacted by heavy flooding and remains de-energized to facilitate clean up. In the coming days, service interruptions will be required to repair damaged poles and other infrastructure in certain areas. To minimize inconvenience, LUCELEC will inform customers and the general public ahead of those.

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

  1. Lucelec have always been Reliable .The worst Public Utility Company in St.Lucia is Wasco .No supervision of the ignorant fools working on the Road .They give which Community they have Women water before other Communities that haven’t had water for weeks.The Heavy Rain yesterday will take weeks before they send water to Communities

  2. Most of them dress very Untidy and Drink Alcohol in all Rum Shops also Destroys the Road Foundation to repair Pipe lines over and over again .Nonsense

  3. For efficiency in restoring power I give them an A+. For their ridiculously high cost of fuel and even more ridiculous fuel surcharge I give them an UNGRADED.

  4. Thank you to Lucelec , great job guys maintaining our electricity up north, way to go….Also Wasco it’s a Miracle , I have water 💧….hopefully as I write that the water flow up in cap continues! Lol Good job to the clearing crews and Officers, Fire Dept.
