The Vice President of Communication, Tourism and Culture, Jorge Rodríguez, informed that until Wednesday, April 24, work will continue with the contingency schedule following the electrical emergency.
This schedule contemplates that the working day must be carried out between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., while classes must be held between 7:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
According to Rodríguez, this measure seeks to consolidate the National Electric Service (SEN). They seek to address the failures that have been generated in several states of the country in recent hours.
One of the most affected has been the State of Zulia, where in the early hours of Sunday the population suffered a blackout in full power rationing.
This fault was attributed to a fault generated in the 138KV Cuatricentenario-Rincón line, which caused a negative effect in the Paraíso and Amparo substations, according to Corpoelec.
Since the month of March, Venezuela has been involved in a series of blackouts that have left much of the country in darkness for many hours. The government insists that this is due to attacks perpetrated from abroad.
