GWI prepares for GPL Christmas
Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas and the Guyana Power and Light Company may find itself in the position of the Grinch. GPL is already complaining about the high demands for electricity and the fairy lights are not even out as yet.
The company wants you to conserve even more since it may be unable to meet the demands. Already in Berbice, the power company is supplying less than 30% of the electricity needed in the ancient county, leaving many there to wonder if they are heading back to the dark ages.
The GPL problems are now trickling down to the water sector and causing major water supply problems. Because of the constant power outages and the long periods of blackouts, the Guyana water Incorporated is seeing disruptions to its service in several communities and the company is taking note, so much so that GWI wants to meet with GPL so the power company could shed some light on its own problems.
The water company’s CEO Karan Singh said his company has been spending a lot of money on developing its system, the system however may not have been prepared for the GPL realities.
The GWI Chief Executive believes there is need now to deal with the power problem, since it is creating several problems for him.
It has become sort of a tradition for GPL to lay out its problems as a power peak season approaches. GWI may have already been in preparation mode but may be unable to avoid much of the problems that could head its way.
