Guanacaste Power Co. Announces Outages
In the face of too much demand, Coopeguanacaste, the electrical cooperative in the northwestern province of Guanacaste, on Thursday began a new wave of six-hour electrical outages in El Coco and Ocotal from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday.
Other interruptions will occur during the same hours on Oct. 2, 9, 16 and 24. Previously, most outages lasted four hours, but in a memo addressed to Coopeguanacaste’s clients, operations manager
Eduardo Cabalceta explained workers needed larger blocks of time to improve the infrastructure.
Electrical consumption in the Santa Cruz and Carrillo cantons has increased by 15 percent in the last three years.
