The Electric Union reports that a maximum affectation of 750 MW is estimated during daytime hours.

They are out of service due to faults. units 6, 7 and 8 of CTE Mariel, unit of CTE Otto Parellada, unit 2 of CTE Santa Cruz, units 4 and 5 of CTE Nuevitas and units 1 and 2 of CTE Felton.

Unit 4 of the CTE Cienfuegos is under maintenance. The limitations in thermal generation (428 MW) are maintained.
In distributed generation, 1,086 MW are unavailable due to breakdown and 436 MW are undergoing maintenance.

For peak hours, the entry of unit 2 of the CTE Santa Cruz with 60 MW (in the startup process) and the use of 136 MW in diesel engines is forecast.

With this forecast, an availability of 2,216 MW and a maximum demand of 3,000 MW are estimated for peak hours, for a deficit of 784 MW, so if the forecast conditions are maintained, an affectation of 854 MW is forecast at the peak.

All consumption restriction measures are implemented in the state sector.
Yesterday the service was affected by a 24-hour capacity deficit. The maximum effect at night was 995 MW at 8:40 p.m., coinciding with peak hours. The service remained affected throughout the early hours of today.
