De Vido promises 'compensation' for citizens hit by power cuts

Federal Planning Minister Julio De Vido today promised that residents who have suffered power outages would be properly compensated, while assuring that energy suppliers would face financial sanctions.

Hundreds of thousands of Argentines have been affected by blackouts, partly attributed to a heat wave that has struck parts of the country over the last two weeks.

"Every company will present their figures and there will be a repayment system, a form of economic compensation independent of punishments, and fines to the company," the politician explained.

De Vido added that the cuts were not caused by a lack of power supplies in the country.

"There is no shortage of energy, there is a distribution problem," he affirmed.

The minister also appealed to consumers to moderate there use of electrical appliances, in the face of scorching hot weather in Buenos Aires and other provinces.

"At 38°C there is a climate crisis, we have to be responsible with energy use, using appliances rationally so that power returns to those who do not have it."
