The president of Enel São Paulo, Max Lins, promised to fully normalize the supply of electricity in São Paulo until the end of this Wednesday (8). Regions of the capital of São Paulo and the state have remained without electricity for more than 100 hours due to the storm on Friday (3).
Initially, Enel had promised to regularize the energy supply by the end of this Tuesday (7), which did not happen. According to Max Lins, the number of properties without electricity in SP fell to 11 thousand addresses this Wednesday, equivalent to 0.5% of the 2.1 million customers affected.
“We are aware of our responsibility”, stated the executive.

Winds of more than 100 km/h on Friday knocked down hundreds of trees in São Paulo and the metropolitan region, which in turn damaged poles and cables in the power system. According to Max Lins, 100 km of network have been rebuilt since then, equivalent to the distance between the capital of São Paulo and the city of Campinas, in the interior.
Also this Wednesday (8), the São Paulo City Hall announced that it will sue the Enel concessionaire and that it will notify Procon and the National Electric Energy Agency (Aneel) so that measures can be taken against the company.
