Restaurant blackouts in Puerto Vallarta will continue on Thursday

The blackouts at Puerto Vallarta restaurants will continue out of protest to the increase in electricity rates, warned the president of the Chamber of the Restaurant Industry and Seasoned Food (Canirac) of Jalisco, Sergio Jaime Santos.

He reported that they held the first meeting with the regional manager of the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE), but the directors did not justify the rate increase of more than a 60 percent, that nowadays put many establishments at risk of closing.

“They say that it is the Energy Regulatory Commission and that’s where the ball is thrown,” summed up the restaurateur leader.

Previously a light bill that was $29,000 pesos, is now $47,000 pesos.

Increases in rates of energy, electricity, gas, and even toll roads this year has impacted the competitiveness and productivity of many small businesses throughout Mexico.

Sergio Jaime Santos said he is confident that next Thursday more establishments will join the blackout. He insisted that they have asked the deputies for a review of the energy reform.
