On line report and response from Edenada about my current power outage:

Buenas tardes
El circuito al que usted pertenece se encuentra fuera por avería
Placer servirle

In this case, they would not know if 6 PM would be when power is back on.

Cabarete
I was out all afternoon, but power went out here on the eaast side of Cabarete around 6:30pm. Came back on in 35 minutes then went out again a little later. On-off-on-off-on-off. Drives me nuts.

Another typical Edenorte day here in Cabarete: on-off-on-off-on-off-on-off
Was off for about 20 minutes on CABT102. On for now. Driving back from a gig last night I noticed the La Colonia section of Cabarete was off, but the rest of the circuit was on.

Cabarete
Power has been off all afternoon on the eastside of Cabarete. Edenorte had two trucks and workers putting up new high voltage lines between the propane gas station and Cabarete. This is the same 1/4 mile stretch of highway where they have been putting in the same lines for a year now.

Sounds like they should get it right in a year or 2. Practice, practice, practice.

Cabarete
Power just went out again on the eastside of Cabarete. It was also out in the Callejon last night. Probably out there again tonight, too.

Here in Cabarete, 24 is the number of times the power goes out every 7 days(24/7).

Cavok, it's the summer time racket! We're getting outages here in Cabrera like gang busters. Not only that, the voltage drops dramatically between the hours of 6pm and 1am. You hear all kinds of Dominican excuses, like everyone is home from work or the lines are dry because of no rain, but I guess it's the Jedi mind trick. They bleed us of voltage quality and cut the grids, but the light bill shows up the same or more. How long does it take the avg. human to figure it out 🤣

Adding here the craziest of all: the voltage drop causes the appliances to work harder for the same amps or end result so we end up consuming more kw! The mafia is real bruh

Ruff duty when it's been so frigging hot and you can't run your AC

You’re lucky they still work. When our voltage drops too low some things won’t run, like our cistern water pump and GE washer won’t spin. And that’s with a whole house voltage regulator (which obviously needs repair or replacement).

It must be confusing for new comers reading these pages. On the one hand it is reported continuously that the DR wealth is bounding ahead much faster than nearly every other country in the Caribbean and South and Central America But on the other hand there is a continuous lack of the three essential necessities of living, electricity, water and safety . It has been the same for years and no Government does hardly a thing about it.....

You forgot education. I would put that way over safety. Not important for tourists of course, but essential for the country's development.
