Haiti: Moïse: Haïti Is Closer To 24/7 Electricity

With more electrical power arriving in Haiti from abroad over the weekend, President Jovenel Moïse said Haiti is closer to having non-stop electricity.

Seventy-nine megawatts of electrical power lines arrived from Turkey, according to a tweet Dr. Evenson Calixte, an electrical energy expert, posted on Sunday.

Port-au-Prince’s metropolitan area currently has 84 megawatts. After installing all the megawatts shipped from overseas, the metropolitan area could have over 200 megawatts, Calixte said.

“The 24/7 electricity is a reality that’s unavoidable,” Moïse said in a tweet

Moïse also said in the tweet that the Ministry of Public Works, Transport, and Communications and the Commission of National Public Market are finalizing a contract regarding the shipping of more megawatts from Turkey to the Northern Departement.
