I e-mailed BEL and got this official response (was wondering if sending generators from US would get to folks before or after power was back):
Per Michael Polonio (who is J.P Business Development And Customer Services):
We appreciate the inquiry and would like to assure our customers in the
affected areas that BEL is doing all it can to restore electricity services
as soon as possible. We are working to restore service within 6 weeks to all
affected areas by stages. Lines nearer to our power plant are repaired first
therefore service is restored to areas in a like manner. We expect to
restore power to some parts of Placencia as early as Monday of next week and
thereafter to other areas as the lines are repaired.
I hope this information proves useful in your decision making.
