Reduced Rotation Schedule Continues

(Tuesday, August 05, 2014)

The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority will continue on a reduced feeder rotation schedule Wednesday, August 6, for the St. Thomas/St. John district. 

While repairs began Tuesday, on unit #18 at the Randolph Harley Power Plant, they are still underway.  As a precautionary measure, and to ensure stability of the system, the reduced emergency feeder rotation schedule which was established for Tuesday will be in effect for Wednesday. 

The Authority implements the emergency rotation schedule based on the best available resources, and in a manner that would ensure service is retained by as many residential and commercial customers as possible. The feeder rotation schedule, which indicates the estimated time a feeder will be without service, is subject to change.  Wednesday’s schedule will be:

6 a.m. to 8 a.m. – 10A                                                8 a.m. to10 a.m. – 8B, 7B

10 a.m. to 12 p.m. – 7A, 7E, Ridge Road                  12 p.m. to 2 p.m. – 7C, 9D, 9C

2 p.m. to 4 p.m. – 7D, 6A                                           4 p.m. to 6 p.m. – 10A, 9A

6 p.m. to 8 p.m. – 8A, 6B                                           8 p.m. to 10 p.m. – 9E

Along with his continued appreciation of the hardworking men and women of the Authority who are working tirelessly to return full service to customers, WAPA Executive Director Hugo V. Hodge, Jr. also expressed his thanks to the business customers who agree to use their own generator power during WAPA’s emergency rotations, to assist with reducing feeder loads.
