Cheap Jerseys From China Dindyal said

…increased line losses a result of higher generation – Bharat Dindyal  The AFC believes that with effective management Guyana Power and Light (GPL) would have been able to save almost $4B per year in technical and commercial losses.Alliance for Change (AFC),China Jerseys NFL Wholesale, Leader Khemraj Ramjattan,World Baseball Classic Jerseys, during a press briefing yesterday,Cheap NFL Jerseys, said that his party does not believe that the power company has been doing anything substantial to curb losses, including electricity theft and line losses.Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the power company,Wholesale NFL China Jerseys, Bharat Dindyal, has said that the matter is technical in nature and that the political opposition has been spouting political arguments.Dindyal told this publication that when the current administration took office in 1992 the first order of business was to focus on power generation and to fix almost the entire system given its decrepit state.Generation plants at Garden of Eden and in Kingston among others had to be replaced in order to ensure adequate power generation.This, he said, was an ongoing process up until 2009 when the company was sold and according to Dindyal the expatriate management at the time undertook no investment in either power generation or loss reduction. He said that in 2003 when the current management resumed control of the company the focus had to be placed again on power generation as a priority.According to Dindyal it was only in 2010 when the power company embarked on loss reduction. This he said is being done through the US$42M Chinese Project.Responding to the fact that line losses have over the past five years increased from some 11.4 per cent to 14.6 per cent,Marshon Lattimore Jersey, the CEO opined that this is logical given that there has been increased generation being forced through the same distribution network.“Of course the losses will go up,” said Dindyal, adding that in order to effectively curb the losses the company still needs to invest another US$60M.The CEO said that even as the opposition carps on the monies the company loses through technical and commercial losses, included in the money it cut from the budget was the very money being used to tackle the issue of losses in the system.The US$42M project, Dindyal said, is just about 70 per cent complete.Ramjattan yesterday told media operatives that 17 per cent of losses by the power company is as a result of electricity theft and amounts to some $2.4B each year.The line losses that Dindyal conceded has worsened as a result of the increased power generation, if eliminated could save the company some $1.4B, according to Ramjattan.The AFC Leader is adamant that on the issue of GPL, “Government is now giving it the spin.”He maintains that when GPL made a loss of in excess of $9B in the past two years, it was taxpayers that plugged $12.5B into the power company.“What they do with it, we are not hearing proper explanations for it and even when some are given we find it questionable,” said Ramjattan.The AFC Leader reminded also that for this year, taxpayers have already contributed to the power company through the National Budget, $5B,Cheap Jerseys Wholesale, while the opposition withheld the additional $5.2B in lieu of the relevant explanations, documentations and activities targeting efficiency.He said that when this is provided the money would be provided.The AFC Leader further charged that government has been pressing for the average citizenry to switch to prepaid meters and it too should follow suit.According to Ramjattan, more than $6B has been approved in the budget for the payment of electricity fees by government for its various buildings under its control.“The Government bill for all its ministries is $6.1B…pay up the $6.1B to GPL so it could do its work, why it only want consumers to be prepaid.”Ramjattan said that should the government pay its electricity bill in the prepaid fashion, “that alone can avoid the 26.7 per cent increase that they are suggesting, because they are saying that our cut of $5.2B is what is causing that.”
