Meanwhile, residents in Srisoonthorn today began suffering the first of three days of “rolling strike” outages as workers upgrade transformers throughout the area.
The Thalang branch of the PEA announced yesterday that the outages will take approximately 40 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the transformer.
However, while some of the outages will be only 30 minutes long, the outages will affect many areas throughout Srisoonthorn through to end of day Wednesday (May 18). (see notices posted above in image gallery.)
In its announcement Thalang PEA apologised for any inconvenience caused.
People who need power supply to ensure medical equipment continued to operate were urged to inform the PEA Thalang office at 076-386882.
The notice also urged people to not perform any work on any electrical supply system while power supply had been temporarily shut off in their area as it was uncertain exactly when power supply would be restored.
