La corporación pública asegura que ya el 99.9% tiene servicio eléctrico.

El director de Operaciones Técnicas de la Autoridad de Energía Eléctrica (AEE), Carlos Alvarado, informó hoy que casi dos mil clientes -de un total de 1.5 millones- siguen sin tener luz en el País desde el paso del huracán María en septiembre de 2017.

En declaraciones a la emisora de radio WKAQ 580, el directivo de la corporación pública explicó que se trata de 1,942 clientes de la compañía.

Dicha cifra se traduce en que el 99.9 por ciento de los clientes ya tienen electricidad tras el paso del fenómeno atmosférico, aseguró.

Es el caso de Adjuntas, Utuado, Aibonito, Barranquitas, Jayuya, Yabucoa (99 por ciento electrificado) y Humacao (98 por ciento está energizado).

Con este grupo de clientes que aún quedan sin luz, la empresa ha intensificado la comunicación.

Muchos de ellos se encuentran en municipios que ya, sin embargo, disponen de luz.
