Argentina had to leave urgently to import energy from Brazil

From the Secretary of Energy of the Nation confirmed that this Friday, minutes before 13, Argentina had to go out urgently import electricity from Brazil, due to the high demand generated from the heat wave throughout the country.

The exchange system, which at the beginning was approximately 490 MW, is planned to compensate for shortages and was activated when the demand for electricity reached a new record in Argentina.

From the portfolio that leads Dario Martinez, explained that “the exchange system does not imply a payment to Brazil for the energy consumed, but that both countries compensate the loans that are requested after resorting to the generation capacity of the other.” In other words, when demand drops in the country, what is consumed is returned.
