Boquerón business owners say power outages are hurting livelihoods

By The Star Staff

Businesses in Boquerón, a barrio in the southwestern coastal municipality of Cabo Rojo, criticized LUMA Energy for the constant interruptions in electrical service during the long July 4 weekend.

Merchants Association President Henry Correa said the situation could worsen due to recent problems with power outages if remedial actions are not taken immediately.

“Since last Wednesday morning, this electrical problem has been hurting the livelihoods of all merchants,” Correa lamented. “It is a dire situation, especially considering that we have more than 200,000 visitors in Boquerón and the electricity is not at its peak.”

Ángel Rodríguez, a businessman and member of the Association, expressed his concern about the potential for more extensive blackouts. He too pointed out that the town has been experiencing frequent power outages, especially worrying during the high summer season when the numbers of both local and foreign visitors increase.

“With the rise in temperatures, electricity consumption is higher, and I fear the electrical system may not be able to handle it, leading to more extensive blackouts,” Rodríguez said.

The owner of the Boquemar parador also pointed out that the electrical system problem has been seen in fuel expenses. Additionally, they have had to make more equipment purchases, such as refrigerators and air conditioners, which are being damaged by irregular fluctuations in the electricity supply.
