Chile was hit by three major blackouts from Sept. 24-26, halting operations at copper mines and darkening several parts of the country, including Santiago. The outages led to calls for the country to invest more in its power sector. Is Chile's power sector a weak link in the country's development? What needs to happen in the power sector in order to avoid future blackouts? Are problems in the country's electrical grid affecting its ability to attract businesses and investment?
