Thus, between 18 hours and 23 hours, technicians will be posted including Port Louis, Curepipe and Tamarin Bramsthan.
Balraj Narroo adds that the peak energy will be reached " normally around from 18.30 to 19 hours. " "We have enough reserves, even if we are not immune to failure of a generator , "he noted. He adds that since today is a holiday, the biggest energy consumers, particularly industrial and offices, will not operate.
