Electricity In Haiti

Charles St Clair Says...

There are many reasons There is astruggling with a lack of electricity in Haiti.

1) Peligre output has reduced considerably due to a lack of maintenance.

When the dam was designed fifty years ago, the population growth projection was not taken into consideration.

In addition, not all the turbines are functioning 100% (I don't know if HASCO is still functioning).

2) The growth in the industrial sector requires more electricity, therefore what little electricity that is available is diverted to that section.

In my estimation, Haiti needs at least five new power plants (1,000 Megawatts each) to satisfy the demand for electricity.

I recently read that Venezuela was planning on building three power plants totaling 1,500 Megawatts.That is a good start, but Haiti needs four times that amount to have sufficient power for everybody 24/7. A power plant cost a lot of many, therefore plans have to be made to respond to this need.This is of high priority,
