In August of 2005, the Center for the New Economy (CNE) published a research paper entitled “Restructuring the Puerto Rico Electricity Sector”. In that report we noted that the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) suffered from various financial and operating inefficiencies that should be corrected as soon as possible. In this update we find, unfortunately, that most of those deficiencies are still present three years later.
