St. Thomas Power Returns to Normal
The last St. Thomas electric feeder came online and power returned to normal by 11:42 p.m. Tuesday after V.I. Water and Power Authority engineers and technicians completed repairs to the Harley Plant's gas turbine Unit no. 23, according to WAPA.
 
The feeder rotation schedule implemented on Monday and Tuesday has been discontinued.
 
A wiring fault which occurred in the generator on Monday was repaired when subsequent troubleshooting determined that a computerized control card for the big generator's starting diesel component needed to be replaced. (See related links below.) The part arrived from Puerto Rico Tuesday evening and was immediately installed.  After programming its software, the unit was returned to service before midnight, WAPA officials said in a statement Wednesday morning.

A wiring fault has not been the cause of 18 outages over a 6 week period. It is ONLY 1 of the causes.
What's next? And When?

Governor and Senators, please get off your respective butts and bring WAPA into the 20th and 21st century and start preparing us to deal with the 22nd.

The time to have started to do this was 2 decades ago.
Stop spending our money on BS and give us the basic services we are entitled to be afforded with our tax dollars.

Power is out again today, Wednesday at 3:45PM - Feeder 7A - OUTAGE # 19 in 6 WEEKS.

Outage # 20 for Feeder 7A on Thursday.
This has gotten really old and frustrating.

Hope all you Senators are enjoying yourselves at Carnival. You, too, Gov.

Power restored by 11AM but now we again have our 2nd outage this monring to make it outage #21 on feeder 7A. Will it never end?

Just an update:
Revised to 22 outages in a 6 week period, ending on Sunday, May 29th, 2012.
A new record for WAPA and for the patience of all of us living in STT/STJ.
