Haiti ranked third worst power supply nation in 2017
In the Spectator Index’s long list of worst performing countries when it comes to electricity supply in 2017, Haiti ranked third-place out of 137 countries.
Haiti came after Lebanon and Malawi, which was rated the worst electricity supply out of 137 countries in the world.
Blackouts are a common occurrence in Haiti; nonetheless, electricity bills continue to grow.
Access to electricity is available to just a minority of the population, and most of it is for just a few hours a day. Disgruntled consumers refuse to pay the bills.
The power trouble of Haiti is actually a part of a bigger problem with infrastructure in general. This problem needs urgent addressing.
