(CMR) The CUC said during the process of restoring power this evening, it encountered a fault that created sufficient instability and resulted in the loss of the entire grid. The company said it was working to get generation back online in parallel with field repairs on the Transmission and Distribution system.
CUC started restoration work this evening. Customers in some areas had power restored before the loss of power in the entire island. Over 28,000 customers are now without electricity.
CUC said four of their 25 feeders remained on during the storm. An additional five were restored as repairs on others continue.
