Castries, March 14, 2022 – At 5:31 a.m. on March 14, 2022, St. Lucia experienced an island wide power outage.

The outage was caused by a cable fault at the Cul De Sac facility.  The fault triggered the protection system, resulting in a total shutdown of the electricity system.

Once the cable fault was isolated, power restoration started at around 6:41 a.m. and was completed at 7:31 a.m.

LUCELEC is investigating why the protection system did not clear the fault without affecting the rest of the system.
