Buccament Bay Resort has been reconnected to the electricity grid.
Sources told I-Witness News that VINLEC, the sole, state-owned electricity provider here, disconnected the resort on Thursday for lack of payment.
VINLEC, when asked if there was a problem with the supply in Buccament Bay, said “in the vicinity of the resort” but declined further comment.
But the entities bordering the resort on both sides had power when I-Witness News visited just before noon Thursday.
The resort manager further refused to meet with I-Witness News on Thursday, saying they were not meeting with the media that day.
A source told I-Witness that a double guest was turned away on Thursday when they turned up to redeem a “day pass” at the resort.
“I went to drop a friend today for a day pass and she had to be turned back. No electricity and no working generator,” the source said Thursday.
The Government said earlier this year that the resort uses EC$300,000 in electricity every month and that they had ordered state officials not to give the resort any preferential treatment regarding disconnections.
