[www.inewsguyana.com] – As the country prepares to celebrate 44 years as a Republic on February23, the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) is inviting all persons desirous of using temporary electricity supply for the purposes of Mash celebrations to contact GPL’s Commercial Offices to prepay for this service.
GPL says all arrangements are in place to meet the demands of customers including technical support during the large float parade along the routes of Georgetown.
“Persons, especially vendors along the parade route, who are desirous of temporary electric services especially Mashramani day can visit GPL’s Commercial Office at 40 Main Street Georgetown and prepay for this service. Please provide a copy of proof of identification and Certificate of Inspection issued by the Government Electrical Inspectorate” the company said in a statement.
The cost of the service will be determined by the electrical appliances (freezer, sound system, microwave oven etc) indicated by the vendor for intended use.
GPL says prepaying for temporary service will allow the Power Company to generate the electricity demand for the period. Persons found guilty of unauthorized electricity supply during the festivities will be prosecuted.
GPL encourages interested vendors to apply for their service on or before Friday, February 21, 2014, during normal business hours.
