    Default Blackout on North Coast - need to verify if true

    I just spoke to Edenorte about a lack of power in Cabarete this afternoon and they said that there is a general black out on the North Coast.

    Can anyone else confirm that?

    Suffered here badly with no power from 1pm on Wednesday until 7am Thursday when we had just 3 hours (so, therefore off 20+ hours). It came on again 2 pm - 4 pm and has just come back on now. We called into the Edenorte office in Sabaneta this morning who told us that there had been a problem with the generator in POP yesterday but they seemed confident that today onwards would be more normal (whatever that is!).

    Thanks Shirley . We also had about the same outages. It is a good sign you are back on, but we aren't yet.

    we are out all over in Puerto Plata. Long outages all week long. Some issue with power plant - I expect the government forgot to pay them!

    We are in Santiago and rarely have a power outage in the evening but we were out today from about 5:15 until 7:40pm.

    It is very common for Edenorte to make up some story about a broken cable when in fact the power plants are cutting back due to lack of payment. That is why I wanted to see if it was indeed a general outage. Thanks for the report.

    Virtually NO blackout today (for the time I was home) on my side of POP.

    Default Costamabar is a Class B circuit

    From the Edenorte web site Costambar is a class B circuit where most people pay for power and should only have outages about 4 hours a day barring major system wide problems.
