Christmas Day power cut due to vehicle collision

| 29/12/2009

(CNS): Some Christmas diners took a little longer to cook in George Town this year as a result of a CUC outage caused by a motor vehicle colliding and breaking a power pole in the afternoon on Christmas Day. From 14:40pm customers in areas at Outpost Road, Windsor Park, Anthony Drive, Pasadora Place and parts of Smith Road, South Church Street from Texaco to the Cayman Crossings vicinity on South Sound were without power as turkeys sat in cold ovens.

A spokesperson for CUC said on Tuesday that staff had however restored power to the first customers at 15:33pm. “CUC apologies to customers for any inconvenience the outage may have caused,” the firm stated adding that it was committed to providing excellent service to its customers and that it is one of the most reliable and efficient utilities in the region. 

“At October 31st 2009, the Company posted a respectable Average Service Availability Index of 99.95 % compared to 99.93 % for the same period last year.  This means that, on average, our customers experienced approximately three and one half hours of outages during the period,” CUC added
