Consumers complain about spate of power outages as Christmas approaches – 19th Dec 2012
The Guyana Power and Light Company is still to say what is exactly responsible for the spate of blackouts taking place across the city and on the West Coast and West Bank of Demerara and also on the East Coast.
Over the past 2 weeks consumers have been complaining bitterly about the power outages and it appears as though as we approach Christmas Day, there is an increase in the number of power outages. Residents especially on the West Side complain about being left in the dark on the issue.
For today alone some area and as much as 5 blackouts and GPL is staying silent. The Guyana Water Incorporated has also been complaining about the GPL power problems, blaming the unstable electricity supply for several water distribution woes.
