There are power blackouts in some areas in the country because of Planned outages, Unplanned outages, overloaded transformers (due to new developments and increased households in some areas that cause power to trip from time to time), power theft/illegal connections, vandalism of electricity equipment in some areas across the country, and failure to maintain the power corridors by the licensees. All these as well as trees falling on the power lines and breaking conductors cause power outages.
