Venezuela rations electricity as demand soars amid hot weather
Venezuela’s socialist government on Tuesday announced a nationwide electricity rationing plan to tackle a surge in demand caused by rising temperatures. The measures include cutting the workday for public officials to six hours, asking private companies to boost energy efficiency and inspecting malls and factories to ensure they meet reduced power consumption targets. “Within a week, power demand has risen 1,500 megawatts,” the electricity minister, Jesse Chacón, said on state TV. With demand at 18,000 megawatts, he said, “the system begins to have stability problems”. Peak temperatures have risen to 34C (93F) in Caracas, the capital, and have hit 37C (99F) in the sweltering western city of Maracaibo.
