Five power plants of the Public Power Corporation S.A. (PPC) have been forced to stop operation because of the workers joining the 48-hour effective nation-wide strike against the austerity measures planned by the government, local newspaper Ethnos reported, as quoted by BTA.
 
The total capacity of the halted power units is 1,641 megawatts.
 
According to PPC’s forecasts tonight the energy demand in Greece will hit 6400 megawatts, a rather low number due to the warm weather this week.
 
Experts however warn that there might be power outages because the syndicates have not announced the exact length of the workers’protest.
