The Cuban government plans to invest $50 million to upgrade Havana's

aging electricity grid, which has been plagued by power outages in

recent weeks, state television reported.

"It has been decided to undertake speedy capital repairs" in the wake of

the recent power outages, which especially affected the municipalities

of Habana Vieja and Plaza de la Revolucion, Havana electric utility

director Ricardo Mangana said.

"This project was envisioned to be carried out over 10 years, but the

outages have led us to do it in three years" because the capital's

electric grid "is very old," Mangana said.

The goal of the project is to upgrade the grid, which has been in

operation for 80 years, to prevent power outages and improve lighting in

the city, state television said. EFE
