The executive said in a press conference that it is important to understand that this contingency cannot and should not be a pretext for people to stop paying their electricity bills.

Additionally, as part of the measures that will be implemented to safeguard the integrity of the workers and to avoid a focus of infection, 18 thousand workers will carry out their work from home.
