Several blackouts, often at night and lasting up to a few hours, have occurred in these days in the area between the Addaura and the Virgin Mary.
For this reason the Cid (Center For International Development) association, which deals with consumer protection, has decided to propose a “class action” against E-distribution for disservices.
“Beyond the inconvenience in the homes – explains Alessandro Palmigiano, who represents the association – yesterday the inefficiencies also affected the premises in the area that were unable to work, precisely in the period of the year during which they have greater requests, with possible damage also to the food contained in the refrigerated rooms which, with these temperatures, risks deteriorating causing huge economic losses ».
For this reason, the association proposes to all those interested, to send «a copy of the electricity bill and, if there were further damages, a list and a brief description to collect the requests.
The distributor – if exceptional circumstances are not proven – will be asked for the compensation due by law and to remedy the continuous unjustifiable failures, especially in a historical moment in which families and businesses are burdened by abnormal bills “.
