"A swift, short-term plan is being finalized to ensure these units are delivered and operational as quickly as possible,"
Not with island time.

Is this something fairly new. We always stay at oyster bay and I canโ€™t remember any power outages.

I suspect your resort has a generator, if you don't remember any power outages. The current situation is a million times worse than normal, but GEBE has been suffering with load shedding and power outages for years.

In the end Gebe will have updated the old units and the price of electricity will double.

Beyond their control??? Hardly!! They are responsible for routine maintenance and upgrading the system and replacing aging equipment what which they have not done. So, yes, it was totally in their control and they have just blown it!

I believe it is on their Facebook page (I don't have Facebook, so can't check). Isn't it really comforting when a company that is having big problems tells you to "rest assured"?

According to SXM or Bust Facebook page, that schedule is not really accurate anyway!
SXM needs to invest in their infrastructure. Desperately.

We arrived today. Supposedly electric was out in Beacon Hill from around 1 PM to sometime between 3 and 4. Thankfully when we arrived at Beachside, the electric was on.
