The workers made their commitment in front of the first secretary of the Provincial Committee of the Communist Party, Jorge Cuevas Ramos, who received information about the diversity of use of this electric complex, which will be integrated to the National Energy System and can only give service to the municipalities of Jesus Menéndez and Puerto Padre, in case of an emergency.
