Mayaguana was plunged into darkness on Saturday night after a generator, recently installed by Bahamas Power and Light (BPL), malfunctioned.
Heated residents have been advised that the generator cannot be repaired on-site and a replacement generator would have to be transported to Mayaguana.
The utility company was not able to tell them when the new generator would arrive on the southern island.
Residents had been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new generator that they hoped would ensure a stable power supply for their community. The island had been experiencing frequent power outages, and the residents were growing tired of the inconvenience it caused in their daily lives.
When BPL promised to resolve the issue by installing a new generator, they did not anticipate they would face another islandwide outage so soon.
However, around 10pm, the generator malfunctioned and the island was once again without electricity.
Angry residents said they were expecting a solution to their power issues, but instead, they are left in a state of uncertainty.
