Saw a blog saying that the PowerCo on Guanaja is bankrupt and possibly shutting down in December.
Can anyone add to this?
Belco is still running, and it seems like there won't be a problem. All good so far!
We just left the island (Feb. 26th) after a six week stay. Power was inconsistent at best. I do not know about the Status of Belco from a business perspective (except that it is poorly run) but service they provide is terrible. I hope they get it together soon. The island folks don't deserve being treated like this.
Just an update here. As of March 2014 our local power company is still up and running, and are working on a solution. The power is being turned off from 2 am till 7 am in the morning because there is too little demand around those hours, and it would put them out of business due to the high fuel cost. But as I said, they are working on a solution, and most of the Hotels have backup systems or run completely on solar energy anyways.
Warm regards from the island!
