The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) reported that 97 percent of electricity was restored, after the blackout that affected 465,000 users in the states of Campeche, Quintana Roo and Yucatán.
In a statement, the CFE explained that yesterday at 4:55 p.m. two 400 kv high-voltage lines went out of operation, affecting 465 thousand users in the states of Campeche, Quintana Roo and Yucatán, which represent 22 percent of the total in this region of the country.
The unit indicated that with the intervention of CFE personnel, the corresponding protocols were implemented and the necessary remote maneuvers were executed to attend to this event.
At 17:36 the supply to users in Campeche was restored to normal and at 17:46 the service to users in Yucatan was restored to normal. At the moment, only 3% of users in the region need to be restored.
The CFE indicated that it maintains coordination with CENACE to restore pending users without affecting the stability of the electrical system in the area.

“The cause of the fault has not yet been identified., because there is a storm with atmospheric discharges on its way from the town of Xbacab to Champotón, which is making it difficult to inspect the area. CFE personnel are ready, as soon as it is possible to do so safely, to start restoring the two 400 kV lines that are out of operation,” the agency said.
