Inspection at Power Station could lead to load shedding
ZIZ Newsroom…July 29, 2010 – An inspection of a generator at the power station may lead to four weeks of load shedding beginning next week.
According to Kevin Bennett, superintendant for generation at the electricity department, they will be inspecting the generating set this weekend.
Bennett said while the generators are being repaired, the power station will not be running at full capacity, so a period of load shedding will begin.
