It affected 1.7 million people in three states, requiring up to 8 hours to restore service.
MERIDA – The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) says that by Tuesday May 23, at 6:30 p.m., 99 percent of the electricity supply had been established for customers who were affected by a mega blackout on the entire Yucatan Peninsula.
According to a statement from the CFE, the technical fault was mainly due to an overload of the electricity grid, produced by an excess on the demand of energy from the inhabitants of the region by the heat wave, which caused the shutdown of a transmission line between Tabasco and Campeche.
This interrupted the supply of electric power to approximately 1.7 million customers in these three states, according to data provided by CFE. The gradual restoration of electricity supply began around 11:00 a.m. and was completed almost entirely at the above mentioned time, so it is estimated that the work took about eight hours.
The CFE reports that the technical fault in the transmission line mentioned did not involve any explosion, as it was falsely diffused in a video by different social networks. In addition, by the same means were published as a joke, theories related to UFOs, because the blackout affected the telephone services, which cut the communication of the peninsula for a long time.
