Lower electricity output in energy-rich Trinidad and Tobago

Huge corporate consumers of electricity in energy-rich Trinidad and Tobago have been told to brace for blackout in some areas of the country.

That’s because of a gas pipe-line leak that authorities hope to seal during next week.

But until then, major consumers of electricity like those in steel manufacturing are being told to conserve on electricity so that most people across the twin-island nation can receive power.

The Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Company (T&TEC) has already announced a load-shedding schedule after a leak developed at a pipeline that supplies Natural Gas to its generators.

The company’s general manager, Kelvin Ramsook was reported by Power 102 FM as saying that since the gas-leak the electricity output has been reduced.
