Four total shutdowns in Demerara power system over Easter weekend – GPL
The Guyana Power and Light (GPL) yesterday said that over the Easter weekend there were four complete shutdowns in the Demerara System.
GPL stated that technical problems at the Kingston power station caused the shutdowns at 9:58hrs, 11:04hrs and 12:02hrs on Easter Sunday. GPL said its engineers worked to rectify the problems and the last affected community was re-energised at 12.58hrs.
GPL did not elaborate on what these technical problems were. Critics continue to argue that despite assurances, GPL is nowhere near to getting on top of the problems plaguing the power company.
