Enel confirmed that more than 2 million customers are without electricity in São Paulo due to rain last Friday (3). Of this number, 550,000 customers have already been supplied with electricity again.
In the capital, energy is only expected to be restored to 100% on Tuesday (7).
The most affected regions were the south and west areas of the city, according to Enel, the concessionaire responsible for energy distribution in São Paulo.
