Power Outage To Be Expected In The Five Islands Area

APUA Headquaters

The Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA) seeks to increase its Five Islands Station and as such customers in the area should expect power outages for the next two weeks.

According to Jason Peters, Transmission and Distribution Engineer, the affected areas will include: All Saints Road, Bendals Road, Bath Lodge, Bendals Creek Side and Golden Grove.

He added, “When we are doing this upgrade to that substation, we dont want those customers that that substation is feeding to be out of power, so we have decided to build a new feeder coming out of a different substation to aid in feeding those customers or providing electricity to those customers”.

The new feeder will be constructed from the Bellmount Station

There has been greater demand for electricity in the Five islands area beause of hotels and the soon to be open university of the West Indies.

Public Relations Co-ordinator, Sharifa George, added that there will be a schedule published by Monday in the newspaper as well as she plans to use other mediums like Facebook and Antigua & Barbuda Today team.

  2. Is that a building in Antigua, this apua? When I left Antigua the tallest building was a two-story building. When did Antigua shoot up so, nah. U remember walking on an empty market Street every day. Only a handful of people making the trek from Ottos to town. Wey Papa. Progress me nah like ‘tall. Gee me back me ole Antigua

    • Tap which part u day if u nah lub um. Running your trap and you not even in the country helping to develop it. You fulla fart no wah lol

    • Really? I am sure you reside in a place that’s constantly progressing,so why would you want those who choose to stay here( Antigua) to remane in a backward state. What a non-sensical comment..You must have left Antigua over 40 years,because that building has been around almost 30 years,if not more..
