BEL Works to Restore Power to Northern Portion of San Pedro

Belize Electricity Limited (BEL) advises customers on San Pedro, Ambergris Caye that the Company is working to restore power supply to the northernmost portion of the island.

At 9:15 a.m. today, power supply was lost to the entire area North of Boca del Rio due to a burnt main pole in the area, which resulted in significant damages to equipment and infrastructure. The cause of the burnt pole is still being investigated.

Power supply was restored to some customers in the area at 9:27 a.m. Most customers in the area, however, remain without power.

BEL work crews have been dispatched and working to repair damages, which are estimated for completion at about 8:00 p.m. tonight.
