The national electric company plans outages today in Barva and downtown San José.
The downtown outage will be between calles 15 and 21 and from the south sidewalk of Avenida 8 to the north sidewalk of Avenida 14, said the Compañía Nacional de Fuerza y Luz. The outage is to conduct preventative maintenance on the underground electrical system, the company said.
The cut in electricity will affect many businesses and lunch spots in the vicinity of the courts complex and includes the Banco Nacional office across Avenida 10 from the Casa Matute Gómez. The Clinica Santa Rita also is on the list, however, some of these locations have their own generators to prevent power loss.
The downtown outage is from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
In San Roque, San Pablo and San Pedro de Barva the outage will be from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., the company said. This outage, too is said to be for preventative maintenance. Among the locations affected are Glory Christian School and the Escuela de San Pablo and the Escuela de San Pedro.
