    More than 3,000 Endesa customers still without power in Tenerife and Gran Canaria

    September 26, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      More than 3,000 Endesa subscribers remained at noon this Monday without electricity supply due to the failures registered since last weekend by the heavy rains fallen on the Canary Islands. Throughout this September 26th, 205 incidents remained open in the Archipelago, according to authorized sources of the mentioned energy company. To correct the problem, the company set up a team of some 200 professionals, both in offices and on the street, to try to correct the problems.

      The islands most affected are Gran Canaria, with 159 cases, and Tenerife, with another 34. In the case of Gran Canaria, the areas most affected by the power cuts are Las Palmas, Telde, Gáldar and Santa Lucía de Tirajana.

      As for Tenerife, the affected customers are located in the Southeast and East of the Island, specifically in Fasnia and Arico, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and La Laguna.

      Endesa recorded half a dozen breakdowns in medium voltage lines, affecting some 650 customers, as well as 199 incidents in low voltage lines, which prevents some 2,500 subscribers from having electricity supply.

      The company explains that one of the obstacles to face the problems is the dispersion of the enclaves where the outages have been registered.

      During Sunday, according to the company, in view of the heavy rainfall in certain sites, it was decided to choose very carefully where to send the personnel, since the priority was always to guarantee the safety of the workers. In addition, especially in the case of Gran Canaria, there were problems of accessibility to certain areas, due to the road closures that occurred.

      Endesa expects that this Monday afternoon all, or at least most, of the faults will be resolved.
