The Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (Prepa) urged citizens this Sunday to reduce energy consumption.
In a publication through its social networks, Prepa informed that work continues at the Aguirre power plant and the Applied Energy Services (AES) coal plant.
"AEE and AES technical personnel continue with the repair works of Aguirre unit #2 and AES#2 unit, respectively. We urge customers to reduce energy consumption while we complete these repairs and return these units to service," the release reads.
Last Friday, a fault in a transmission line took out of service units of Central Aguirre and AES.
According to the information published by the public corporation, the event occurred in the 230 kilovolt line that runs between the transmission center of the South Coast Power Plant and the Transmission Center located in the town of Manatí.
Meanwhile, PREPA reported on its Twitter account that "due to the disturbances that occurred in the transmission system that caused the output of the AES 2 unit twice this week, EcoEléctrica's CT 1 unit on Tuesday and AG 2 today, we inform that the AES 2 and AG 2 units suffered damages that need to be attended to immediately."
However, as of about 5:46 p.m., LUMA Energy's website reports only 1,864 customers without service.
