This is not good news. Many resorts have generators but it cost to run generators and I really don’t know if small restaurants even have generators? I would be making sure the restaurants you go to eat have generators. My advise is eat on the French side or if you can stay on the Frenchside.

I'm not sure why there are no renewables in the plan for electricity supply, I can only guess that for some reason there is no financing available. Engineering wise solar PV and wind could be part of the mix as they are on Saba (currently 40% renewables and planning on 60% by 2025). If a reliable electricity supply could be achieved then maybe battery electric vehicles could start to be introduced onto the island (nobody is going to have "range anxiety about their EV on SXM!).

Sadly, I don't think that SXM has really kept up with infrastructure. They have been kicking the can down the road. And this is what happens. (My town is currently having the same problem)
