The SEN is going through a complex situation in which the failures and breakages of its eight terrestrial thermoelectric plants weigh heavily, most of them with more than 30 years of use, the lack of investment and the fuel deficit.

Cuba’s electrical system will face the summer in “better conditions,” according to the minister

To deal with this situation, the Government scheduled maintenance tasks in the first months of the year so that the generating plants remain in optimal conditions in the months of July and August, when the summer gets harsher.

The long blackouts throughout the country, especially in moments of greatest crisis, have increased the criticism and peaceful protests of the population.
