GRANMA. – Because it increased the number of inspectors, this territory expects to be able to follow up the program designed to achieve bigger electric power savings in factories and service units.
The insufficient number of inspectors hampered the detection of management flaws in controlling the measures to optimize savings. In July – to mention one period – the territory exceeded its expenditure plan by 3,6%. This means it used around 2,000 MW*hour more. This is equivalent to covering the demand of the territory for more than 24 hours.
According to information received from managers of the Electric Company of Granma, the province was able to employ one hundred new supervisors. This will allow it to systematically control each of its units.
Examiners in each Popular Council, will support these inspections, which will intensify during this month of August when the celebration of carnivals in Bayamo and Manzanillo can increase electricity expenditure.
Although daily assignment has been raised for this period with respect to the previous month, local authorities insist on carrying saving measures to the maximum. They plan to influence those companies that persist in using electricity without defining their [savings] plans or that do not follow self reading procedures, among other frequent violations.
