    ENRE charges $20 million against Edenor for electricity outages

    January 18, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      The Ente Nacional Regulador de la Electricidad (ENRE) charged Edenor with $20 million for not reporting the events that resulted in the power cuts to 2.3 million users on January 11, 14 and 15.

      By Resolution 7, the ENRE filed charges against the concessionaire Edenor for "having verified non-compliance with the contractual obligations regarding the duty to immediately report the events that affect its facilities throughout its concession area".

      The agency certified that "the company did not report the events that occurred on January 11, 14 and 15 of this year, which resulted in affecting the electric supply for approximately 2,300,000 users".

      On January 11, the fall of 1,800 megawatts affected 700,000 users, and "based on the technical report, the ENRE's Intervention determined that it is appropriate to initiate an administrative investigation and to charge Edenor for non-compliance with its obligations regarding public safety, in order to determine its responsibility for possible sanctions".

      In turn, Resolution 7 of the ENRE's Public Safety Department ordered the company to submit the maintenance records of the easement strip and inspection reports; to carry out and prove the measurements of the height of the conductors, correcting them for the weather conditions and the load factor of the day and time of the event; and to prove the preventive measures that were and would be carried out in the High Voltage Line to protect the houses installed there.

      On the other hand, the Regulatory Norms Application and Administration Area was instructed to carry out a technical analysis to determine the causes that led to the supply interruptions on those days, and to verify compliance with the obligations and commitments assumed by the company.

      With this technical analysis, the ENRE "will issue the relevant sanctions and measures to prevent failures of this type or similar with the aim of minimizing the time required to restore the power supply", the agency stated.

      Within the framework of the provisions of the Concession Contract, the distribution company has a term of 10 working days to make its defense.
