… to cater for company’s purchasing power
…citizens invited to make representation or objections

WITH the Guyana Power and Light Inc (GPL) seeking partnerships to remedy its shortfalls in power generation, the government through the Ministry of Public Infrastructure, is moving to amend a section of GPL’s licence to allow the purchasing of power from external sources.

In local newspapers on Sunday, a notice signed by Minister of Public Infrastructure, David Patterson, stated that GPL’s licence restricts the company from purchasing power from any person other than an Independent Power Producer (IPP) which produces power from renewable energy sources.

The IPP also does not include businesses whose main business is not the generation of power and which supply no more than 10 megawatts (MW).
Currently, GPL is in the process of finalising a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with MCG Investments Inc. [Giftland Mall] to enhance its generating and reserve capacity and meet the needs of its customers.

While the legal and regulatory modalities are being completed, GPL’s board has given authorisation for the receipt of Expressions of Interest (EoI) from other potential power providers with immediately available generation capacity. Another such potential supplier is Banks DIH.

The company faces many challenges due to the shortfall in power generation in the Demerara-Berbice Interconnected System (DBIS).

Due to a defective transformer at the Onverwagt, Berbice Substation, GPL is unable to export 6.9MW of power to the DBIS. Additionally, a 5.5MW generator at the Canefield Power Plant is scheduled for maintenance, while a 4MW generator at the Garden-of-Eden Power Station is unavailable as GPL is currently awaiting replacement parts. To compound the situation, on September 3, one of GPL’s poles with two transformers was uprooted by contactors on the Sheriff/Mandela Road expansion project.

In the notice, Minister Patterson expressed that the government and GPL are serious about working toward the reduction of blackouts, as well as the supply of efficient power to Guyanese.

“There is much public interest (home-owners and private businesses) to supply their excess generation capacity to GPL’s grid. The government and GPL are desirous of facilitating distributed generation in a manner that is consistent with GPL’s generation and expansion plans, and with the country’s Green State Development Strategy (GSDS) which recommends the opportunity for consumers, small and large-scale businesses to supply their excess generation to public suppliers,” Patterson stated.

With this consideration, the minister has proposed the amendment of Section 15 of GPL’s licence in keeping with Section 13 of the Electricity Sector Reform Act, 1999.

It should allow the company to purchase the excess generation capacity of its consumers, self-generators and other businesses where feasible and consistent with the company’s generation requirements for connection to its grid.

The general public has been given no later than October 6, 2019, to make representations or objections to the Minister of Public Infrastructure at his Kingston, Georgetown office.

When PPP is back in office, the first thing they should do is bring back Bharrat Dindial to run GPL.

By then he could be 95yrs ole, or feeding worm.

Even if he is 200 years old he will do a better job than the dunce Jamaican who is in charge.

Bibi dawling, let it be!😘  PPP has a 50% chance or more, if no riggery.  Let Django sweat!

My sources told me the US will turn a blind eye to some rigging as long as there is no widespread violence and discrimination against Indians and other minorities!

America got we back dawling!

The US turned a blind eye to the rigging of the 2015 election... and  PPP going to a election with a alleged fraudster and BJ opens his big mouth about reviewing all oil contracts, so what you think US will do. 

The international community is silent  to the constitution being violated, its enough to see the outcome of the coming election.

When I speak the truth of the PPP and their behavior and why the US mistrust them and prefer the PNC, people say in PNC and all that shyte.  I’m just telling the truth.  Jagan caused the US to hedge with the PNC.  I saw the PPP cozying up to countries like Iran and allowing uranium exploration much to the dismay of the US.  Why would they now trust the an oil rich PPP.  What’s to stop them from cozying up with Russia, Venezuela etc and form an anti-US axis.  

I don’t blame the US!   PPP are shallow non-strategic thinkers.  Sheer big mouth and fat talk.  They did more damage to the Indian cause than the PNC.  The facilitated it!

Oi Baseman when Iman speak out against the PPP, some of the members here along with you tell me I hate Indos, now ..."SHAZAM", quick change artist on the move. Doan worry Base, you seeing the light.

Speaking the truth that BJ is a hindrance to the PPP to some means I dislike PPP and Indos, well if that is the way some see it who the heck am I to argue with them? That banna is leaving the country in the hands of Granger.

I heard they can run cakeshops and the country altogether. In a recent piece by Mark Benschop, he praised the coalition govt and Granger for being fighters for Guyanese people during their short term in office. What do you say to that?

I always listen to everyone.  The PPP fked over coolies and Indians alike.  But I will give them critical support.  The PPP have much good, but they have to govern better.  And they have to exorcise themselves of the anti-American sentiments.   It destroys their good sense!

As for the PNC, if not for their racism, I don’t have any major differences I cannot work through.  They have good aspects, but they are out to displace and replace Indians.

True, Indians and coolies, even cane cutters are brilliant, but are we smart?  We know good how to score 99-100% and spell every word in the encyclopedia Britanica.  I contend that Blackman has demonstrated more smarts and they out witted Ayuh coolies in Guyana!

Good marning.
