Industry and commerce suffered Wednesday morning as the electricity service was disrupted in several areas of the country.
Work operations were also disrupted, especially since offices now are heavily reliant on computers.
Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Service (TTEC) has blamed its Trinidad Generation Unlimited (TGU) power plant, at Union Estate, La Brea.
TTEC has not yet provided further details.
The plant was set up in 2009, principally to provide power to the then-planned Alutrint Aluminum Smelter Plant.
The plant has six gas turbines.
Bulk power is provided to TTEC.
There were blackouts for several hours in various areas of Trinidad.
