Tegucigalpa resident Elmer Bustillo has been named the new General Manager of RECO.
He is an electrical engineer who has been with ENEE (National Energy) for 13 years. His varied educational background will help him take on this new undertaking of getting RECO back on track. Roatan Bruce: What is the current state of fuel and diesel supplies for the island since not having enough fuel was a major problem for months before RECO was taken over by the national government? Elmer Bustillo: The fuel supply problems have been corrected when NE took over RECO. Elmer Bustillo: There are two major problems. Elmer Bustillo: It will take about one year to get all the generators back to good working order, so there is an emergency plan by the government for leasing new generators. Once we get the emergency decree by the government, it will take one to two months to get another generator. So it seems like we will all be in a brownout situation for a few more months. Roatan Bruce: What percentage of efficiency are the generators working at right now? Elmer Bustillo: We are running them up to 60 percent efficiency and are not able to push them further than that for fear of them breaking down totally. Roatan Bruce: I am asking that you please find a way to cordon off the area above the airport where all the radio and television transmitters are located so that when you do have an emergency or the need to brownout an area arises, that we will still have some communication on the island. Elmer Bustillo: The way the local electric grid is designed now makes that impossible. Elmer Bustillo: All that depends on the stockholders.
