      Users on social networks reported failures in the electric service during this Sunday, October 1.

      In the messages that circulated on platforms such as X, they indicated that in areas of Caracas there were electrical fluctuations.

      Some sectors where the situation was registered were: Los Dos Caminos, Los Palos Grandes, Montalbán, Puente Hierro and El Paraíso.

      They also mentioned La Candelaria, San Martín, San Bernardino, El Cementerio, among others.

      The same occurred with Aragua, Barinas, Miranda, Táchira, Portuguesa, Mérida, Falcón, among others.

      Venezuela's electric system with failures

      Recently, it was reported that the National Electric Corporation (Corpoelec) is not sending enough energy from the Simón Bolívar Hydroelectric Power Plant, known as Guri, due to the deterioration of the Trunk Transmission Network.

      This situation has been registered since August, according to information accessed by El Pitazo.

      The company stopped supplying between 700 and 900 megawatts from the Guri, as indicated.

      This situation would be to help keep the country's electric service stable.

      However, some experts such as José Aguilar, engineer and specialist in electricity generation systems, have warned that the Trunk Transmission Network is deteriorated due to lack of maintenance.

      "The problem is that they cannot pass the required amount of hydroelectricity generated in Guayana due to the poor condition of the network. It is affected by the increase in temperatures", he commented to the digital media.
