The Directorate General of the EDH is working in order to make operational all electrical networks damaged during the passage of Isaac in Haiti and informs us that 7 of the 32 circuits are back in service, in Port-au Prince.

The following neighborhoods are served : Downtown (fully restored) ; Avenue Christophe (restored) ; Road of Dalles ; Street Monseigneur Guilloux ; Hospital Asile Français ; Martissant ; Peguy Ville.

The teams of the EDH are currently working on the circuits of : Road of Frères ; Turgeau ; Pacot ; Downtown of Pétion-Ville ; Carrefour Feuille [recently fallen] ; Delmas 19/31 [recently fallen].

Technicians have worked on Airport Road all Saturday afternoon and will continue their operations Sunday morning.

In the great South, particularly in the city of Jacmel, where significant damage were recorded (broken wires, broken poles etc..) local technicians have sought and received additional support in order to perform the necessary repairs, to this end, 2 teams of Port-au-Prince will go to Jacmel this Sunday in the first hour, to help their colleagues to restore service in the zone. Meanwhile, the technicians of Jacmel of the EDH took the decision to impose a general blackout in the city, in order to ensure the safety of the population until they can inspect and repair the damage.
