belLast night, the entire country of Belize was plunged into darkness after two unscheduled power outages was experienced between 7:00 and 9:00. Today, while the Belize Electricity Limited has stabilized power, they issued a statement saying that the nationwide outages were caused by weather conditions that affected Mexico last night. The release says the country experienced outages at 7:20pm and 8:35pm and within twenty minutes, it was stabilized.

BEL says that low water levels at the major hydro plants and maintenance at two of the power plants in the country are presently limiting the Company’s contingencies to mitigate against weather-related instabilities and that plans are in place to resolve the maintenance issues by weekend. Of note is that Belize’s national grid is powered by Mexico’s Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) Ticul Substation.
