Venezuelan minister of energy grants energy failures
Energy demand increased early 323MW in September
The minister also stated that energy demand increased early in September 323MW with respect to figures recorded in 2011, yet he did not reveal overall consumption.
"Demand is currently met and maintenance plans are already in place."
Analysts have asserted energy consumption will increase in the upcoming days amid higher demands by factories and the end of the school break.
They have also underscored power failures are the result of maintenance gaps and violation of energy plans.
