    As long as the ICE reservoirs are not filled and sufficient energy cannot be generated with the wind, electrical rationing will remain in force, which would imply between 2 and 3 weeks, according to the ICE reported today.In other words, as long as the rainy season does not start strongly, the country will have problems.

    From when will rationing take place?

    Starting next Monday, May 13.

    What is the energy emergency due to?

    The effect of El Niño prolonged the dry season and decreased rainfall in 2023, which meant that the ICE reservoirs did not fill and therefore, it is not possible to generate enough hydroelectric energy.On the other hand, two companies contracted for bunker electricity generation suffered delays.
