More load shedding but it’s been happening for a long time perhaps people will start to believe me


There seems to be a lot of power cuts on the Island recently, is it my imagination or are the power company’s failing to stand up to their responsibilities.

May be thay are cutting corners in order to save money for their share holder’s.


Likely over loaded by all those growing drugs, using lights, etc. Lot of it about now.


i suspect with the over zealous lockdown and nanny state, handbag swinging jobsworths, barking social distancing and stay indoors orders, companies like SSEN haven’t had the staff available for preventative maintenance and as such – things have broken that would have been replaced under usual circumstances.

Old bean

Clare and anon talk crap the company has done many upgrades over lockdown FACT
