Aden, NewsYemen, special:

While the Houthis strangled Hodeidah between the hot summer and the huge electricity tariffs... The capital, Aden, witnessed a stable summer with reasonable hours to operate electricity and bills that are still less than what should be paid at the minimum.

On the verge of the end of the hot summer months, the capital is still witnessing stability in the number of electricity hours, 3 operating hours compared to 3 hours off, which is relatively stable compared to the previous summer.

Also, Aden experienced spring weather in the middle of summer, affected by global climate change, which witnessed heavy rains in the regional neighborhood.

The efforts of the local Aden authority, with the Saudi grant that sells fuel to the Yemeni government at the local subsidized price inside the kingdom, have combined to solve the Aden electricity crisis.

The matter is not without malfunctions of the old power stations, which cause interruptions in some areas from time to time, and other faults that fall under the random connection of electricity to some citizens.

As for Hodeidah Governorate, which is under the control of Iran’s arm, its summer flared up on the one hand, as the temperature reached 45 degrees Celsius and the humidity reached 85, and the electricity tariffs, which the militia later invented as a new source of collection, doubled.

After the sounds of an iron campaign rose last June, the Houthis operated the power stations, and the Houthis punished the citizens by distributing electricity bills to homes, so that families were surprised by prices that reached 200,000, what they described as imaginary amounts as a Houthi punishment for the campaign to demand electricity.

In the month of September, press sources reported that the Electricity Corporation, which is controlled by the Houthi militia in Al-Hodeidah Governorate, began installing commercial meters that work with prepayment to collect the government's semi-commercial electricity tariff in the coastal governorate in western Yemen.
