Power cut affected some area of Nicosia on Sunday

A power cut on Sunday left residents of Kaimakli and Pallouriotissa in Nicosia without electricity for about 90 minutes before it was fixed.

“It was due to the combination of high temperatures, high humidity and high demand,” EAC spokeswoman  Christina Papadopoulou explained. However, as she pointed out, though the incident occurred between 3.45pm and 5.30pm, it was not a direct result of people returning from the beach and using a lot of electricity at that time, as reported.

Rather, the faults developed due to higher temperatures in Nicosia since Friday. A period of conditions that trigger high demand can result in power cuts days after.

“Gradually the underground cables heat up and the plastic cable joints break,” Papadopoulou said.

When this happens, they are being repaired as soon as possible and electricity is being restored to the affected areas in stages.
