Damage to cables caused by construction works related to new schools, says GibElec CEO

Thursday's power cut was caused when construction works at Watergardens, related to the new schools projects, damaged three arterial cables.

This is according to CEO of the Electricity Authority, Michael Caetano.

Mr Caetano said in future, the new power plant will also see the installation of a distribution network with different backup systems.

GBC's Christina Cortes spoke to him.
