Argentina orders distributors to compensate customers

The government of Argentina is forcing distribution companies, Edesur and Edenor, to pay compensation to customers affected by blackouts during the heat wave that hit the country in December.

The level of compensation per customer will vary between $74 and $132, and will be based on how many time each user was left without an electric supply, according to a report by BNamericas.

State-owned news agency Telam added that Edesur is expected to pay about $33m overall, with the cost for Edenor lower at less that $11m.
