HELCO says 1,200 customers still without power


Hawaii Electric Light Co. continues to restore electric service to customers who lost power as a result of Tropical Storm Iselle.

Service to an additional 300 customers was restored Monday, the company said today (Tuesday) in a written statement. An estimated 1200 customers remain without power.

Significant progress has been made in Hawaiian Beaches and Hawaiian Paradise Park. Pockets of customers within these areas may still be out of power. Customers in those areas who are still without power should report it by calling 969-6666.

The utility said line crews are focused today on the following areas: · Nanawale Estates, Lanipuna Gardens, Leilani Estates and Kapoho, including Vacationland and Kapoho Beach Lots.

“We appreciate our customers’ patience as we make progress. In some neighborhoods, although main power lines have been restored, individual outages may need to be addressed home by home,” said HELCO spokesman Darren Pai.

Restoration progress may also be impacted by access due to storm debris, fallen trees, or other conditions in the field.
