12 states will see random, rolling blackouts from 6:00-11:00 p.m. Tuesday
Move is in response to electrical supply issues in the north.
There will be random, rolling cuts to power supply in 12 states on Tuesday night, the National Energy Control Center (Cenace) announced.
The electricity market operator warned residents of Aguascalientes, Colima, México state, Guanajuato, Guerrero, Jalisco, Michoacán, Nayarit, Puebla, Querétaro, San Luis Potosí and Zacatecas that electricity supply will be interrupted between 6:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. Central Time.
Cenace said the blackouts are necessary due to the increase in demand for electricity in the evening and night and the “unavailability of sufficient generation to cover the northern and northeastern regions of the country.”
