It’s the fourth consecutive day of power outages, with two days still available for restoration.
As of 8 p.m. local time, only three days remain for power to be restored.
The power cuts are affecting the Marocon facility in Maroc and some local businesses, with some customers having to travel a distance of more than six kilometres (3.5 miles) to access the plant.
With no power coming from the plant, Maroc Mayor Patrick Ségol said Wednesday morning that he is in talks with Energy France and the Marocha power utility in order to have power restored.
A spokesperson for Energy France said they’re still working on their contingency plan and the company doesn’t expect power to come back on until Wednesday evening.
But the spokesperson noted that all local businesses that depend on the plant are being contacted and asked to come with them to power up the affected areas.
The Maroc power plant is currently facing an outage because of the transmission line meltdown and the shutdown of other plants due to the quake.
On March 19, an official with Maroc said the power outage in Marocon has been affecting the power grid since March 5 and as a result, local businesses and residents have been forced to use alternative electricity sources, including rooftop solar.
Maroc Power has also faced challenges due to earthquake activity in the area, including landslides and flooding caused by the previous earthquakes.
It’s unclear how long the power outage will last.
