On Twitter, the president thanked ” the @EnergiaMinasCub workers for the huge effort they are making to improve the situation in the shortest possible time. Thanks to our people for their resistance.”
Díaz-Canel explained that the current situation occurs due to breakages in some plants and the scheduled exit of others for maintenance.
“It has been two extremely hard years with the pandemic and the intensified #Blockade”, he added.
In the last few days, Cuba has reported damages to the electric service due to breakdowns in several thermic units, mainly in the east and center of the country.
According to the authorities, the island is also facing financial limitations and the blockade imposed by the U.S. government, which have prevented it from carrying out the required maintenance in a timely manner.
