The Sosu103 circuit was scheduled to go out for maintenance today from 10 am - 4 pm. Did it?
Thanks for the heads up. Tomorrow seems like a bad day for laundry. Your message is confirmed byThis is what I have been told for tomorrow Saturday Oct 24. No electricity pretty much all day.
"In the north, the 69 kV lines Playa Dorada- Sabaneta de Yásica and Canabacoa – Playa Dorada, will be under maintenance from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm Within the affected municipalities and communities are: Sosúa, Cabarete, Sabaneta de Yásica, Playa Dorada and Don Pedro."
With 3 PM being the expected return time after the maintenance, I plan on 5 or 6 PM to be when power is restored. Hopefully.The inverter kicked in 8:06 here in Cabarete😐
Got power back at 12...With 3 PM being the expected return time after the maintenance, I plan on 5 or 6 PM to be when power is restored. Hopefully.
It is because of all of the maintenance.At least twice today the power in My part of Sosua (Sosu101) has flickered off and then back on again. There seems to be some instability in the system today. In the past this type of activity has preceded a failure resulting in an outage but not always. These events were significant brown outs at best. Hard on unprotected computers and some appliances. Makes me just a little concerned as darkness approaches. Still waiting for my repaired inverter to be reinstalled so dark is really dark with no power.
I was joking. With all of the constant maintenance, you would think that there would not be constant failures all of the time.On the inverter?

The maintenance seems to have little effect at reducing the problems.
At least our power is on unless there is a failure or maintenance.
Far better than the 8 to 10 hours daily we got when I moved to here, which went to 12 hours and now the DR version of 24/7.
Don't get rid of your inverter just yet. I always plan to have a small generator as well. Solar panels perhaps , but they would be mainly used to feed the grid and reduce my bill if it ever gets up to that magic 700 kWh number in a month.
