Santo Domingo.- State-owned electric utility (CDEEE) CEO Ruben Jimenez Bichara said Friday that the electricity service will improve nationwide, because a major plant that was under repairs since January resumed operations yesterday.
"This means that the service begins to return to normal in the areas that were most affected. We had 300 megawatts offline," he said.
"The generation is maintained at a stable level."
Some recent blackouts stemmed from outages of the plants AES Andres (maintenance), Itabo 1 (boiler leak), and San Felipe (fuel), whose output plunged 180 MW to 74 MW late January.
