Power Outages Felt In Guanacaste Province
Electricity outages continue to affect parts of Carrillo, a canton in the northwestern province of Guanacaste. The towns of Nuevo Colón, Playa Hermosa, Playas del Coco, and Ocotal lost power between 8 a.m. and noon on Tuesday and Wednesday as technicians from Coopeguanacaste, the province’s electrical cooperative, replaced electrical lines.
The group began cutting electricity in July for four-hour periods, sometimes twice a week. The maintenance is being done in conjunction with the new electrical substation being built in Nuevo Colón.
