The whole of Ecuador experienced a multi-hour power outage on Wednesday. The blackout was caused by problems with the distribution networks.

The failure of the Milagro Zhoray transmission line in Ecuador resulted in a nationwide power outage. The entire country of 17 million inhabitants experienced a multi-hour blackout.

Ecuador has been struggling with energy problems for years. In April, there were problems with energy production due to drought, and as a result, President Daniel Noboa ordered eight-hour power cuts.

Roberto Luque claims that power outages could have been avoided if, after a similar power outage that occurred in 2004, Ecuador had implemented an investment plan aimed at “securing infrastructure both in terms of energy production and transmission.”
