The power outages on the Buenos Aires province generated enormous concern in thousands of users who took to the streets to protest and were upset by the failures of the service in search of a solution for avoid this situation. The one who spoke about this was the former Secretary of Energy, Emilio In, who raised a dilemma between good service waves low rates.
Speaking with La Nación +, Apud remarked that “you have to do a bit of history, because in 2002, people paid 100% of services and this was very good, to the point that there were no cuts and the price was for below the regional one. He added that “a group of users could not access the full rate and accessed the social rate without any problem.”
“This is a question of energy populism, because the rate and the quality of the service are deteriorating,” continued Apud, who charged against the subsidy by mentioning that “they do not cover investments, but rather to continue pulling and cover expenses.” , because “when Kirchner left there was an average of 33 hours of outages per user.”
When analyzing what happened with Macri, Apud assured that “the increases were poorly reported and somewhat wild”, because “users went from paying 15% to paying 80%”, but “when he left, the quality of the service had improved a lot. The Alberto Fernández government had received a good service, because the tariff honesty brought the average cut from 33 hours to 11 “.
“Today the causes are not known, it is said that it was an accident, but there is always a reason, such as the lever or sabotage,” remarked the former secretary who warned that “it is a service that is not enough to support demands such as those that exist. when it is hot, because a normal system in developed countries can endure cold or heat peaks because companies are able to make investments ».
