Gb Power: 90% Now Electrified


Grand Bahama Power Company (GBPC) yesterday confirmed that 90 percent of its customer base have seen electricity services restored following Hurricane Dorian.

Dr Hubert Minnis, the Prime Minister, revealed the energy monopoly's restoration progress in the House of Assembly yesterday when he said: "In terms of electrical supply, GB Power has energised approximately 90 percent of their customers. Approximately 3,000 are not yet energised, including East Grand Bahama and the surrounding cays. "

A GB Power spokesperson said the 3,000 represents customers in east Grand Bahama and those with significant flooding damage, who still need the proper assessments completed and subsequent clearance from the Grand Bahama Port Authority (GBPA) to have their power restored.

GB Power is owned by Emera, a Canadian company. Emera provided GB Power with the necessary resources to do the job and GB Power, together with the additional personal and equipment did a very good job.

Emera has brought foreign professionalism to Grand Bahama Power and it shows in the speed with which they, and the other Freeport Industrial companies, got everything working.

We should sell, may be just give, BPL to Emera.
