On Thursday (March 10, 2011), Abaconians took power in their own hands, turning up the heat on BEC to ensure that the major blackouts that drove tourists away last summer, won't happen this time around.
Residents were promised the problem would be resolved with the opening of a $100 million power plant which is able to supply the island of Abaco twice over. But it seems BEC may have put the cart before the horse because the necessary infrastructure was not in place to provide sufficient distribution throughout the island.
