The Provincial Electricity Authority‘s Thalang branch (PEA Thalang) in Phuket made public its plans for a scheduled power outage in the expansive Mai Khao area tomorrow (Thursday, November 23).

The interruption to the power supply, which is set to last from 9am to 5pm, is a necessary measure to allow maintenance workers to conduct repair works on high-voltage cables within the precinct. This activity, aimed at ensuring the continuous provision of reliable electricity, is integral to the upkeep of the area’s power infrastructure.

The blackout will impact several areas, including Baan Dan Yid, Soi Mittai, and the residences of Yaowalak van der Pfeiffer and Jesara Chalermwan, among others. Various businesses will also be affected, such as the Phuket Boatyard Company, Duangrudee Thitadilok Shipyard, CP Pig Farm, Phuket Premier Boatyard Company, and the Phuket Campground.

The knock-on effects will also reach Kia Sae Hong’s accommodation, Soi Mor Iam, Burapha Shrimp Farm, Captain Hook Smoke House Co. Ltd., Dan Mo Co. Ltd., Khun Anucha Shrimp Farm, and Charter Company Limited.

The PEA has made a public appeal to all residents and businesses within these zones to make appropriate plans to mitigate any potential disruption during the power cut. The authority has advised the public to disconnect sensitive electronic devices and take necessary steps to protect their appliances.

An expression of regret for any inconvenience caused by the power interruption has been offered by PEA Thalang. They assure the residents that this is an essential step to enhance their services and maintain the region’s power grid, reported Phuket News.
