A deficit of more than 700 MW predicts a day of severe blackout in Cuba

Forget the recent “frame motion” that shook the leadership of the Cuban regime; the Electrical Union of Cuba (UNE) announced this Saturday a large deficit in generation capacity, which will once again cause large blackouts in the country.

“For the peak hour, the availability of 1,970 MW and the maximum demand of 2,700 MW are estimated, for a deficit of 730 MW, so if the expected conditions continue, an impact of 800 MW is predicted at this time,” stated UNE in their social networks.

Without worrying about “correcting the distortions”, the state company that is driving Alfredo Lopez Valdes again lied to the Cubans regarding the blackouts that affected them the previous day.

If this Friday, the UNE information note predicted an impact of 562 MW during peak hours, in this Saturday’s report, the company recognized (as usual) that its forecast fell short and the effects this time reached 608 MW.

The week that ended was critical for the supply of electrical energy to the socialist state company, which had blackouts of more than 12 hours per day on Monday when the damage reached 1,111 MW, and similar numbers in the following days.

At the end of January, UNE reported that the Antonio Guiteras thermoelectric plant began operation after stopping for a few days for maintenance. However, the synchronization of the largest thermoelectric plant in the country with the national electroenergy system (SEN) did not lead to an increase in electricity production.

“Lack of fuel” and “long shifts” are the latest excuses offered by customers to a company that does not offer a solid service despite being key to “economic development. ”

At any time, a computer attack from abroad” added to the catalog of accusations that UNE is often accused of, and the ruler Miguel Diaz-Canel will again be forced to pretend to be in charge.
