    Power outages in Cuba worsen: energy deficit almost reaches 60%.

    September 22, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      The electricity crisis in Cuba has reached a critical level. The state-owned company Unión Eléctrica (UNE) reported that the island will have this Thursday the highest energy deficit registered so far, equivalent to 57% of its maximum generation capacity.

      This is the second time that this rate exceeds 50% in the current Cuban energy crisis, which is reflected in daily power cuts throughout the country. At some points they reach twelve consecutive hours.

      UNE calculated for Thursday's peak consumption hours (afternoon-evening) a generation capacity of 2,037 megawatts (MW) for a maximum demand of 3,200 MW, so the deficit will amount to 1,233 MW.

      The company of the Ministry of Energy and Mines also estimated that the maximum load during these hours will be 1,233 MW.

      UNE explained that several units in 5 of the 8 thermoelectric power plants in the country are currently out of service due to breakdowns.
