Generation is handled by the Electric Power Authority (PREPA), a corporation that has a new director, Josué Colón, after Efran Paredes submitted his resignation amid the massive blackouts that are being reported on the island affecting hundreds of thousands of clients.
In addition, yesterday it was indicated that the former Secretary of the Housing Department, Fernando Gil, assumed the presidency of the PREPA Governing Board.
Currently, according to the corporation’s portal, there are a little more than 11 thousand clients without the service, the Arecibo region being the most affected with more than 6 thousand subscribers.
