On Twitter, the President said that “with great effort, the energy demand is being covered. Our recognition to the workers of Unión Eléctrica”.
Con mucho esfuerzo se va cubriendo la demanda energética. Nuestro reconocimiento a los trabajadores de la @OSDE_UNE, a los transportistas que están distribuyendo el combustible por el país, y a cada persona que pone su granito de arena en estos difíciles días. #Cuba #SíSePuede https://t.co/f5mmbFY5xE

He also praised “the transportation companies distributing fuel throughout the country, and every person doing their bit in these difficult days.” The President made this recognition after the country’s electricity generation was notably affected in the last few weeks due to the shutdown of several units due to scheduled maintenance and breakdowns.
However, this Saturday and Sunday, the National Electric System behaved stably. Hence, there were no effects on the service of the domestic service due to a deficit in the availability of generation throughout the country, according to the Electric Union (UNE).
