Hotel in Granada, Nicaragua – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingBlackouts or brownouts happen in Granada, Nicaragua (and for that matter, al of Central America) but they don’t happen every day.  During a typical year, we experience about four or five blackouts. It’s not too much and it takes only between 2 and 4 hours in general for the power to come back on. 
 
I had a generator about 10 years ago because back then, we had blackouts almost every day. Blackouts don’t happen as frequently any more, so, while I still have the generator, I don’t use it.  I normally just wait until the electricity comes back on.

Electricity in Granada is reliable now compared to how it was six or seven years ago. We no longer experience a lot of blackouts except if it is raining or if there is lightning. Most of the time, the electric supply is really good. It has been so good recently that I do not even remember when the last blackout happened anymore.
Janice Gallagher of Granada Property Services – Best Places In The World To Retire User Account
The electricity in Granada, Nicaragua has improved greatly in the past several years and we hardly ever experience blackouts like we did several years ago. Not to say there are not spikes in the electrical system so you always want to use some type of surge protector on your more expensive items like computers, refrigerators, TVs, etc.
