HAVANA, Cuba.- The main indicators of electricity generation in the country during last year, were discussed at a meeting led by the President of the Republic, Miguel Diaz-Canel and led by Prime Minister Manuel Marrero, and also with the presence of Commander of the Revolution Ramiro Valdes.
It was known that electricity production by different ways in 2019 was more than 20 thousand gigawatt hours, higher than the previous year, although the plan was not fulfilled.
This was mainly due to the decline in consumption by the savings measures implemented to face Washington’s actions, aimed at preventing fuel acquisition and stifling the Cuban economy.
For this year, the reinstatement of three thermoelectric units to the National Electro-energy System is planned.
