– rehabilitation of network underwayIt has been months, and intense regular low voltage continues to be of concern to several communities across the country.According to residents on the West Bank of Demerara, countless reports have been made to the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) regarding this, and despite several fixtures, the situation continues.Residents of La Grange, Stanleytown, and La Parfaite Harmonie Housing Scheme, West Bank Demerara remain fearful that the current situation may cause damages to their household and other appliances.Nalini Motilall who runs a printery at La Grange told Kaieteur News that the frequency of the power outages result in her having to complete her work late at nights with the use of a generator.She explained that while her work can still go on,Asics Kayano 23 Pas Cher
, there are other businesses that depend solely on the electricity provided by GPL. The woman made mention of several joinery shops.The residents are complaining that they do not fall short on paying their electricity bill, and should therefore not be faced with these continuous bothers.Some are of the opinion that GPL should compensate those who face losses due to the company’s negligence.Nonetheless, a GPL advertisement in Sunday’s edition of the Kaieteur News, read that contracts have been awarded for the “Rehabilitation of the Low Voltage Distribution Network”.It said that areas to be targeted include East and North La Penitence, Georgetown; La Grange Old and Public Road, Inner Stanleytown, Canal No. 2 all on the West Bank of Demerara; Windsor Forest on the West Coast of Demerara, Mon Repos, Blossom Scheme-Enmore, Victoria Village and Now or Never on the East Coast of Demerara,Cheap Jerseys
