Costa Rica News – The entire Central American power grid is at risk of more blackouts.
As you know, there was a national blackout Saturday in three nations that affected the circulation of vehicles and pedestrians, especially in the cities.
The 1,820 km line of electric transmission linking the six countries of Central America is very vulnerable.
The Central Operational Entity, which is responsible for this network, confirmed that the system could again be disconnected if there is an overload of energy, as happened in Panama this weekend.
Major investments and reinforcements are necessary so that if intense storms result in electricity being rerouted the voltage increase will not automatically disconnect Panama, Costa Rica and Nicaragua.
