NIA CHARLESTOWN NEVIS (December 13, 2019) — The following is an advisory from the Nevis Electricity Company Limited (NEVLEC) regarding a power outage on Sunday, December 15th.

There will be an interruption to the Charlestown 1 Feeder, from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Sunday 15th December which will affect the following areas:

Pump Road from the Water Department – Jehovah Witness Church; Upper Government Road to below Alexandra Hospital and Sea Island Housing Developments in Stoney Grove.

This interruption is necessary to extend High Voltage lines, and to install switch from the top of Government Road through to Lower Government Road in the vicinity of Riviere House.

Upon completion, the Charlestown 1 Feeder re-routing exercise, which currently runs along the Island Main Road into Bath Village and on to Lower Government Road, will be completed from Pump Road through to New Cut via Marian Avenue and Government Road.

This is expected to significantly improve reliability to both the Charlestown 1 and 2 Feeders, which is one of NEVLEC’s strategic goals for 2019/2020.

NEVLEC, again, thanks its customers for their understanding and apologizes for any convenience caused due to this interruption.
