Energy deficit causing blackouts
Santo Domingo.- The energy supply deficit in the last few days has caused a reduction in generation, leading to a situation where the distribution companies cannot meet demand, according to the Dominican State Electricity Corporation yesterday.
The CDEEE said that at noon yesterday the grid had 1,666 megawatts in operation, to supply a demand of 2,216 megawatts, which means it could only supply 75% of total demand.
Of the total energy served, 276.5 megawatts came from the hydroelectric plants and the rest (1,389.5) came from the other generators.
The reduction is due to the exit of several plants due to breakdowns, affecting the Los Mina V and VI and Itabo I generators, as well as problems linked to the cost of supplying fuel to the three Cogentrix units.
