The blackouts put the Cuban dictatorship in check: obsolete structures, negligence and mediocre leaders

The blackouts have become the main challenge of the Cuban dictatorship, according to experts, who highlight the burden they pose for an economy already in crisis, the impossibility of stopping them in the short term and their ability to fuel social discontent.

It is a devilish problem: tremendously expensive, without simple or quick solutions, with enormous ramifications that spill over into the entire Cuban economy and society, and elements beyond the reach of the regime.

It is clear that the energy situation has gotten out of hand for the communist regime.

The country’s thermoelectric plants –responsible for two thirds of the energy– are obsolete and lack spare parts, maintenance and investment. In addition, they require fuel at a time when Cuba has great difficulties in obtaining oil, due to its financial problems and the difficulties of Venezuela, its main supplier.

The regime has no cards to play: the system is in crisis, there is no long-term solution in sight and they have to try to manage this as best they can. The Cuban economist is “a building about to collapse from having suffered an earthquake.”

Blackouts not only affect homes – in the 2000s the regime undertook an “energy revolution” in which it put electric stoves in thousands of houses – but also businesses and the agri-food sector. This failed energy revolution has caused a chain effect due to blackouts affecting the economy, tourism, transportation, the incipient internal trade and consumption.

Energy “is the basis of everything”. Díaz-Canel should be worried because of all the problems that exist, the most dangerous, the most worrying and the main one is the generation deficit because there is no way out.

The situation is quite ugly and the worst thing is that there is no ability to provide a solution in the face of so much ineptitude on the part of the communist leadership that the only thing they know how to do is rob the people of it.

In July alone, blackouts were recorded on 29 of the 31 days of the month, according to data from the state-owned Electric Union (UNE). In some localities the outages exceeded ten consecutive hours.

So far in August the problem seems to have no solution and blackouts have reached up to 16 hours a day in most of the country. Cuba is bankrupt and its leaders are so mediocre and immobile that they have no short-term or long-term solution. The only solution is people in the streets demanding an end to communism.
