According to the Colombian presidency, Petro and his government team meet with Lasso with the purpose of “taking actions that help face the energy crisis that the neighboring country is currently experiencing.”

Local media indicated that Foreign Minister Gustavo Manrique and the Minister of Energy, Fernando Santos, traveled with the Ecuadorian president, who will also be received by the Colombian Minister of Mines, Andrés Camacho.

During the day before, Lasso indicated that at various times Ecuador has sold electricity to Colombia for its internal demand while pointing out that “we believe that this time there will be reciprocity with Ecuador. I am sure I will bring good news.”

The National Electricity Operator of Ecuador (Cenace) reported that the country has received between January and October of this year, 902.6 gigawatts per hour from Colombia. However, in recent days the flow has decreased due to the arrival of the drought stage in the Colombian nation.

According to Ecuadorian sources, in recent weeks the generation of hydroelectric plants has decreased, after which the authorities announced that there would be electricity cuts of up to three and four hours per sector.

In turn, the Ecuadorian Government indicated that this situation could continue until next December if generation does not improve at the Paute, Mazar and Sopladora power plants complex.
