LUMA: Service outages possible due to ‘technical issues’
By The Star Staff
LUMA Energy posted on social media Monday that “due to technical issues,” various communities may be affected by electrical service interruptions.
“Due to technical issues in the electrical system, customers may be experiencing rotating outages at this time,” LUMA Energy said. “Know that the LUMA brigades are responding and working with the [Puerto Rico] Electric Power Authority [PREPA] to restore service as quickly and safely as possible.”
“To minimize the impact of potential service interruptions, we urge our customers to conserve power today, especially during peak hours between 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.,” the private operator of the island’s electricity transmission and distribution system added.
At press time PREPA had not stated what problem it was facing, if any.
