QCOSTARICA – Many parts east of San Jose and the downtown area were in the dark last night, shortly after 7:00pm, due to a problem in the Instututo Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) transmission line  supplying electricity.

The problem would have occurred in the distribution system and maintains ICE out of service, 4 CNFL substations.

Power failures  lasting only a few minutes after 7:00pm were also reported in parts of Alajuela, Cartago, Escazu and bordering Santa Ana. ICE officials say they do not know if the power failure in those area was related to the same problem.

It was an hour or more before power was restored.

Later in the evening, Elberth Duran, spokesperson for ICE, said a fire in a substation in San Miguel de Heredia may have been the cause of the blackout, the  fire could have activated the protection systems of the generating substation.

“The San Miguel is very important station for the national grid,” said the official.
