Sometimes it is necessary for EPC to shutdown the electrical power for line maintenance, installations or other major works, these are known as scheduled shutdowns and the public will be given due notice of the shutdown. Announcements will be made via the mainstream radio and television as well as on the website.
Similarly if lines are damaged by external factors such as weather or car accidents, a power outage may be caused. In this case
EPC will make an announcement informing the public of actions being taken to fix the outage but often an exact length of time
that the power will be interrupted will be unavailable. This said EPC always endeavors to restore regular power supply in the shortest possible amount of time.
