DR1: Blackouts Cost Verizon US$3 Million
According to Verizon Dominicana president Jorge Ivan Ramirez, the energy crisis not only affects his company but all the country's productive sectors, making it less competitive compared to other nations. Verizon has to spend approximately US$3 million per year in the purchase of electric generators, maintenance, UPS and other equipment due to the unstable service provided by the power distributors, as reported by El Caribe. Ramirez admits that the government is taking steps to solve the energy crisis and said that he hopes that the plan being implemented is successful, as the country's development depends on it.
