Dear Editor,

Out of frustration I’ve decided to write this letter to highlight GPL’s apparent new mandate. Almost daily there are blackouts, sometimes more than once a day, not to mention the voltage fluctuations.

At 4am on Wednesday, November 25, I was awoken by a blackout. I realized that it was actually low voltage, and so I had to get up to take off all appliances and lights. Leaving for work at 6.35 am there was still low voltage. These voltage fluctuations can damage people’s appliances but GPL doesn’t seem to care.

Blackouts are becoming too frequent and need addressing immediately. Consumers actually burn more electricity because of these outages.

I’m hoping whoever in authority is responsible for the functioning of GPL, will do what’s necessary to ensure the power company functions effectively.

Yours faithfully,

Anthea Spencer
