WAPA STX Service Interruption Update 8pm

(Saturday, April 18, 2015)

The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority continues the restoration of electrical service to St. Croix following a day long power service interruption today. Generating units 16 and 19 are on line and Feeders 1,4,5,6,8,9 and 10 have been brought on line. The two remaining feeders 2 and 3 are expected to be restored shortly.  

A failure in the bus circuitry which connects WAPA’s power generators to the feeders and electrical distribution system on St. Croix triggered an island wide power interruption across the island for hours on Saturday.
