The electricity has returned to the homes of the 1,500 families affected on Wednesday by the power cut in Ten-Bel, private urbanization of the municipality of Arona. The service was restored thanks to the placement of generators in the different residential complexes after Endesa It will cut off the supply due to accumulated defaults and the lack of response from those responsible for the supply installation.
The power returned after one in the morning after more than 10 hours without electricity in much of the urbanization. Affected residents who have paid their electricity fees now want to know what the company responsible for the electrical installation has done with their money, since it has not paid Endesa bills for months, according to company sources. In addition, Neighbors demand that a solution be found to the limbo in which Ten-Bel finds itself and that is behind this blackout.
The problem goes far beyond defaults. Ten-Bel, opened in 1963 as a large tourist apartment complex, It has been left in a nobody’s zone, which explains the ghostly appearance of many of its common areas. Almost 60 years after the opening of the first sets of bungalows, a large part of these complexes have not been received by the Arona City Council, a fact that should have happened since the works were completed. That is, the streets and common areas have not passed to municipal management, but remain in an administrative limbo, under private tutelage.
The Consistory therefore does not have any competence to maintain and improve the common areas and provide them with the corresponding services.. At the same time, Ten-Bel is no longer a purely tourist area. Many flats were sold and resold in such a way that they have ceased to be hotels or apartment complexes to become residential areas, where illegal occupation is also proliferating. His management has been decapitated, which affects some common spaces that present deplorable conditions. The Aronero City Council had to intervene to regulate traffic and guarantee safety while the generators arrived.
