Air-e’s Jhon Jairo Toro spoke about the improvement in the quality of service in Atlántico, La Guajira and Magdalena, and the company’s plans for the coming year.

Toro told La Republica that the quality of service has improved by 30% after 14 months of operation.

The executive highlighted that the company achieved this thanks to its investment plan, and Air-e plans to invest CoP$200B in 2022.

“We have transformed the operation. Today, we can say that we have improved 30% of the main service metrics such as interruptions and their frequency,” Toro explained.

He said that the improvement is 40% in regions such as Magdalena.

The expert said that the company has resources of CoP$330B for projects under development and soon to be inaugurated.

“Our compliance is advanced, today it is over 90% of development,” Toro said.

Toro added that the company will continue to launch new projects in the coming quarter.

“We started the operation with about 35% of energy theft, perhaps it is the region with the highest number. We stopped the growth of this and we are at 32% at present. We expect to reduce this figure the coming months,” Toro said.

He explained that the economic damage from energy theft can amount to CoP$60B each month.

Toro recalled that the company is interested in investing in renewable energies, participating in coming auctions.

“We are looking to be a leader in clean energy, have a better tariff for our customers and secure supply and price over the long term. This will involve moving important resources, which will bring employment and development to the region,” Toro said.

Bottom-Line: Air-e has made progress in fundamental projects to improve the quality of energy service in the Caribbean region, obtaining positive results in a short period of time.

Energy theft will be one of the most difficult challenges to overcome, but it seems like the company is on the right track to achieve it.
