The competent authorities have already received formal instructions in order to finalize the work, including those of the hybrid power plant which is to be inaugurated in June" Jovenel Moïse adding "The localities of Dupity, Grosse Roche, Bois de Laurence and Laguanithe do not have an electricity network.
