Power-outs to continue in Honduras. Private sector blames rationing, state utility says wind farm is the problem

Thursday, September 1, 2011

Power-outs are becoming ever more frequent in Tegucigalpa and neighboring communities in Honduras.
Santiago Ruiz, a private-sector leader, said that the power-outs are rationing in disguise because the state-owned generation and distribution system has simply worn out.
Technical authorities from the state-owned power utility said that the power-outs have been caused by overloading. They blamed work on the installation of a wind-farm in Santa Ana.
