Problems in transit and commercial, productive, and domestic activities are situations that are even more complicated

Santiago, DR

The interruptions in the electrical service have intensified in a large part of the Cibao region since Monday, which has created discomfort in the population due to the disorders that this generates in all activities.

Problems in traffic and commercial, productive, and domestic activities are even more complicated since many companies do not have emergency power plants to respond to blackouts.

With the improvement experienced in recent years, where many of the circuits in this region have a 24-hour energy program, both the plants and the investors were left aside.

Provinces such as Santiago, La Vega, Espaillat, Puerto Plata, Valverde, and Mirabal Sisters, among others, suffer interruptions in the supply of electricity. However, until mid-morning this Tuesday, the Northern Electricity Distribution Company (Edenorte), nor any other institution state, have explained the problem.

That is neoliberalism for you. Allowing multi-contractors generate and distribute your electrical energy create complexities, friction, delays, and even delivered sabotage. A significant portion of the public illegally steals electricity (they think it should be free) and their tampering of the lines disrupt services to all.
This happens because of the permissive and impotent culture of compassion, humanism, and sympathy that democracy has planted and the first victims are the rule of law and personal responsibility and obligation!

The lack of energy generation is the fallout of governments of past administrations using the energy sector as the employment receptacle of unqualified people as political favors using it as a cookie jar to rob while forsaking preventative maintenance. Unqualified people, no money, and no maintenance. This culture lead to the challenges the present administration has to correct all the abuses of the past. It cannot be cured overnight, the people will still have to suffer through this.
