President Jovenel Moïse, accompanied by the Prime Minister, Jacques Guy Lafontant, yesterday visited the construction site of the Irois Power Station.

This evaluation visit enabled President Jovenel Moïse to inquire about the state of progress of the work, and also to instruct the site managers to adopt all the measures deemed useful in order to make the Plant operational before the the expiry of the time limits.

The Irois Power Plant, which uses wind power and solar energy for electricity generation, is part of the administration of President Moise to increase and diversify Haiti's energy production to facilitate the supply of electricity to the country 24 hours a day, as the president has promised on numerous occasion. It remains to be seen if President Moise will be able to keep yet his biggest promise: To provide the entire country with electricity 24/7 by the end of his remaining four years in office.

Also, the Head of State reminded the population of Irois that consumers of electricity will have to pay for the energy used to help sustain this innovative project to permanently improve the living conditions of the population .
In addition, President Jovenel Moïse gave instructions to EPPLS General Manager Yvon Buisreth to quickly build some 20 houses to accommodate the families on the site of the Power Plant who will have to be relocated for reasons of security.
