BEL Restores Power following Damage to Utility Pole

In a press release send out by BEL on Saturday, March 8, at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Belize Electricity Limited (BEL) lost power supply to the area north of Boca del Rio, San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. Initial investigations revealed that a utility pole in the area sustained fire damage at its base, causing the structure to weaken and fall, pulling down the pole next to it. This activated a recloser, which automatically cut off power supply to the area until the damage is repaired. The company anticipated that power restoration would be completed by the following day Sunday, evening. BEL regrets the inconvenience customers may have experiencing as a result of this outage.
