Weather problems in Guernsey highlight importance of electrical courses

Technicians who have completed electrical courses may have been in strong demand in Guernsey recently, as the island has endured ten faults with its electricity supply since November.

Guernsey Electricity has been forced to close roads while its engineers deal with cable faults, with the company claiming that it is the wet and windy weather that has led to the problems, reported BBC News.

Tradesmen with electrical course qualifications will have been brought in to deal with the issues on the island and some homes were cut off for a short amount of time.

The utility company stressed that the number of faults it deals with tends to rise over the winter period, as consumers utilise more power, according to the news provider.

Guernsey Electricity recorded its highest ever demand for energy on December 2nd, with engineering director at the organisation Steve Morris commenting: "High energy demand predominantly coincides with cold weather, and this is largely due to the increasing popularity of storage electric heating in Guernsey."
