LUMA and PREPA say that over a million customers already have electricity service

the consortium LUMA Energy and the Electric Power Authority (AEE) reported that more than one million customers already have electricity service, without specifying the exact figure.

“Electric service was restored for more than 1 million customers as of 4:00 am”indicated the company in its most recent report, which corresponds to 5:30 a.m.

In a joint communication, both entities indicated that the work to reactivate the island’s entire energy system will continue today.

However, they recognized what followers of The new day have reported for the past few hours: once they recover electrical service, they lose it again in a matter of hours or minutes.

While power has been restored to portions of the island, some areas may experience a temporary loss of power for brief periods of time as we work to balance generation and stabilize the power grid.”they explained.

We urge customers to conserve their energy usage throughout Saturday to help reduce energy demand and risk to the system.

For his part, Governor Pedro Pierluisi -who continues to travel through Spain- wrote on his Twitter account that the figure reported to him by LUMA Energy and PREPA this morning was 1,045,089 subscribers with electricity service or the equivalent of 71.2% of customers at island level.

“The most up-to-date information I have received is that some 1,045,089 customers already have electricity, since Unit 2 of Aguirre entered, and Ecoelectrica is currently being energized, which will add more megawatts to the network. Right now, 71.2% is energized”the executive tweeted.

The general blackout that crosses Puerto Rico since Wednesday night occurred after a breakdown and fire at the Costa Sur plant. The cause is still under investigation.

During the press conference held yesterday morning, Colón explained that the Costa Sur and Ecoelectrica power plants in Peñuelas are still out of service and that they are waiting for some work to be completed in the transmission and distribution area, in charge of from LUMA Energyto “begin unit startup and place them into service”.

Costa Sur and EcoEléctrica (private) are two of the largest plants in Puerto Rico.
