Saved Stories – None: Successful presentation of inmates in Bayamón

San Juan, Puerto Rico (April 12, 2018) – The difficulties of integration into the free community among former Puerto Rican inmates were dramatized following the successful presentation of the play ‘Imagínate’ at the Braulio Castillo Theater in Bayamón , starring 60 women of the corrections population of the Department of Correction and Rehabilitation (DCR).”The work is an indisputable educational tool to present to society a major conflict in the incorporation of former inmates into the free community, at the time when again, creates a new opportunity for rehabilitation among members of the correctional population that integrates the piece, “said the secretary of the DCR, Erik Rolón Suárez.

‘Imagine’ was presented under the direction of the first actress Elia Enid Cadilla, also director of the institutional theater program at DCR, ‘You Decide’.

Five short stories comprise the work that exemplifies experiences on the realities of former inmates and society through 60 women of the correctional population that are part of the Rehabilitation Center for Women of Bayamón.

Rolón Suárez, who recalled that the highlight of the rehabilitation has been part of the encomienda of Governor Ricardo Rosselló, also congratulated the participants and stressed the importance of theater as a means of rehabilitation, “the Correctional Theater program helps to shape the concerns of the inmates and to develop a talent in the tables that could have great repercussions on the professional development of the inmate once he leaves the system “.

The DCR will soon announce the dates for the new presentations of the Correctional Theater program.

The entry Successful presentation of inmates in Bayamón appears first in Periódico El Expresso de Puerto Rico .

Saved Stories – None: The Steps for the Energy Transformation of Puerto Rico

Dangerous weather Electricity pylons with power lines in stunning storm during colorful sunset.Click here for English

The business model of electricity generation companies, including the AEE, traditionally known as build and grow and based on (1) the construction of larger and more efficient generating plants, using cheap fossil fuels and (2) in a Continuous increase in electricity consumption, began to fail in the 70s due to limitations in the achievable efficiency in the generation of electricity, the increase in the price of fossil fuels, the new environmental regulations, the reduction in the demand for electricity and the entry of new generation technologies using renewable sources.

Put another way, the model of producing and selling electricity changed 45 years ago. But in Puerto Rico PREPA continued to do things as it had always done. Therefore, it should not surprise us that it is necessary to radically transform ESA.

Now, the reform of Puerto Rico’s energy system has to be well thought out, strategic, and follow a logical sequence, even more so when PREPA simultaneously faces the challenges of rebuilding the electricity system after Hurricane María, restructuring its debt. under the procedure of Title III of PROMESA, a substantial reduction in the demand for its services, and the possible privatization, total or partial, of the electrical system that has been administered and operated as a monopoly for more than seventy years.

Given this situation, we recommend that the following process be implemented to transform our energy system:

First , the Energy Commission for Puerto Rico, working in conjunction with PREPA, must update the 2016 Integrated Resources Plan in a manner that takes into account the meteorological events of 2017 and establishes goals and objectives with respect to the capacity of necessary generation, the tariff and price structure to be charged to consumers, the standards to rebuild the transmission and distribution network, and the incorporation of renewable energy into the network, among other important objectives.

Second , based on the Integrated Resources Plan, determine the modality of privatization and the optimal market structure to achieve the goals and objectives established in that Plan.

Third , the Energy Commission should establish guidelines to govern the transformation process. These should include the qualifications that will be required of companies that wish to participate in the process. Here it is important to pay attention to the tenderer’s corporate reputation, his financial situation, the performance he has had in other jurisdictions, and yes he has had legal problems due to breach of contract or corruption indications in other places, among other factors.

Fourth , the Energy Commission must clearly establish the criteria that will be used to grant the contracts. Among other criteria, it is important to focus on the technological capacity of the firm, the experience of the management team, the estimated costs of production and the financial strength to make the required capital investments. If the contracts are granted to companies without adequate experience and resources, the result will be the total failure of the privatization process.

Fifth , once the technical parameters are established, through the Integrated Resources Plan; the optimal market structure for Puerto Rico; the qualifications that will be required of the companies that participate in the process; and the criteria for awarding contracts; then the Authority for Public-Private Partnerships of Puerto Rico will proceed to negotiate the pertinent contracts to implement the transformation of Puerto Rico’s electrical system.

Sixth , the Puerto Rico Energy Commission shall issue a certificate of compliance as a condition precedent to the closing of any contract or transaction. This requirement is common in the United States in the buying and selling processes of highly regulated entities, for example, financial institutions, telecommunications companies, or radio and television companies. The purpose of this requirement is for the Energy Commission to certify that the negotiated transaction meets the previously established criteria.

Then, the process of implementing the new structure of the electricity market in Puerto Rico would begin. 

Unfortunately, P. del S. 860 contains several clauses that limit or dilute the authority of the Energy Commission in the context of the transformation of the ESA.

For example, Section 6 (c) and Sections 8, 11, and 12 of the bill limit or eliminate the powers of the Commission to (1) regulate the fees and charges that may be charged by a procuring entity; (2) require the contracting party to comply with any process, requirement, approval, or review by the Energy Commission of Puerto Rico; and (3) require the compliance of any contracting entity with the provisions of any Integrated Resource Plan. It also eliminates the applicability of any regulation promulgated by the Commission to the Transactions of the PREPA and eliminates the requirement that any contract awarded with respect to any Transaction of the PREPA be evaluated or approved by the Energy Commission.

The implementation of these limitations would be a serious public policy error. And in the words of the Acting Inspector General of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) at a recent public hearing in the United States Congress, it is a recipe for disaster. I believe that the last thing we want in Puerto Rico after so much suffering caused by the slowness in re-energizing the island, is to cause another disaster in the electrical system caused by inadequate regulation and the malfunctioning of our political institutions. Recall that the energy crisis in California in the year 2000-2001 was caused by a deficient regulatory framework that was used by Enron to increase rates astronomically and resulted in selective blackouts across the state due to human error, not nature events .

In summary, the adequate regulation of the market is essential to obtain the desired results in terms of modernizing our electrical system, incorporating generation with renewable sources and reducing the cost per kilowatt-hour.

Steps towards Energy Transformation in Puerto Rico

The business model for electrical generation companies, including PREPA, traditionally known as build and grow, is based on (1) the construction of ever larger and more efficient generating plants using cheap fossil fuels and (2) a constant increase in electrical engineering. This model began to fail, however, in the 1970s due to limitations on the achievable efficiency in the generation of electricity, the increase in the price of fossil fuels, new environmental regulation, a reduction in the demand for electrical power, and the entrance of new generation technologies using renewable energy sources.

To put it another way, the model for producing and selling electricity changed 45 years ago, but in Puerto Rico PREPA went on doing things the way it had always done them. So it should not surprise that PREPA needs to be radically transformed.

Puerto Rico has to be well-thought-out, strategic, and it must follow a logical sequence, especially when PREPA is facing a number of simultaneous challenges: the rebuilding of the electrical system after Hurricane Maria, The restructuring of its debt under the procedures of Title III of PROMISE, a substantial decline in the demand for its services, and the possible privatization, total or partial, of the electrical system that has been administered and operated as a monopoly for more than seventy years

Given this situation, we recommend implementing the following process for transforming our electrical system:

First , the Energy Regulatory Commission for Puerto Rico, working in conjunction with PREPA, should update the 2016 Integrated Resource Plan to take into consideration the meteorological events of 2017 and establish goals and objectives for the generation capacity needed, the structure of rates and prices be charged consumers, the standards for rebuilding the transmission and distribution network and for incorporating renewable energy into that network, and other important objectives.

Second , on the basis of the Integrated Resource Plan, determine the modality to be employed for privatization and the optimal market structure for achieving the goals and objectives set forth in the Plan.

Third , the Energy Commission should establish guidelines to govern the transformation process. Among these guidelines should be the qualifications to be required of the companies who wish to take part in the process. Here, it is important to take into account the bidders’ corporate reputation, its financial situation, its performance in other jurisdictions, and whether it has had legal problems due to breach of contract or accusations of corruption in other locations, among other factors.

Fourth , the Regulatory Commission should establish clear criteria to be used in granting the contracts. Among other criteria, it is important to focus on the firm’s technological capacity, the managerial teams experience, the estimated costs of production, and the financial solidity for making the necessary capital investments. If the contracts are let to companies without adequate experience and resources, the result will be a total failure of the privatization process.

Fifth , after establishing the appropriate technical parameters (via the Integrated Resource Plan), the optimal market structure for Puerto Rico, the qualifications to be required of the companies taking part in the process, and the criteria for granting the contracts, the Puerto Rico Authority for Public-Private Partnerships can proceed to negotiate the contracts necessary for implementing the transformation of Puerto Ricos electrical system.

Sixth , the Puerto Rico Energy Commission should issue a certificate of compliance as a condition precedent to the signing of any contract or transaction. In the United States this requirement is common in sales of such highly regulated entities as financial institutions, telecommunications companies, and radio and television companies. The purpose of this requirement is to ensure, through a review by the Energy Commission, that the transaction negotiated with the previously established criteria.

At that point, implementation of the new electric-market structure in Puerto Rico can begin. 
Unfortunately, Senate Bill 860 contains several clauses that limit or dilute the Energy Regulatory Commissions authority in the context of the transformation of PREPA.

For example, Section 6 (c) and Sections 8, 11, and 12 of the bill limit the Commissions power to (1) regulate the rates and charges that a contracting entity can impose; (2) demand that the contracting party comply with any process, requirement, approval, or review by the Energy Regulatory Commission of Puerto Rico, and (3) demand that any contracting entity comply with the provisions of any Integrated Resource Plan. Likewise, the bill now before the Senate eliminates the applicability of any regulation issued by the Commission affecting PREPAs Transactions and also eliminates the requirement that any contract with respect to any PREPA Transaction be evaluated, approved, or endorsed by the Energy Commission.

Implementation of these limitations would be a serious public policy error. Indeed, in the words of the Acting Inspector General of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in a recent congressional hearing, it would constitute a recipe for disaster. I think the last thing we want in Puerto Rico after so much suffering caused by the slowness in restoring the islands electric service is to provoke another disaster in the electrical system because of inadequate regulation and the unsatisfactory functioning of our political institutions. We should remember the energy crisis in California in 2000-2001 caused by a weak regulatory framework that was taken advantage of by Enron in order to raise its rates astronomically. This crisis resulted in rolling blackouts across the state due to human error, not natural events.

In summary, adequate regulation of the market is essential if we are to obtain the desired results with respect to modernizing our electrical system, incorporating renewable sources of energy into our generation system, and reducing the cost per kilowatt-hour.
