The frequent theft of electricity by vendors has caused the ALABAMA TRADING on Robb and Bourda street to experience power outages for the past three days.
According to Lam, Alabama Trading has been affected for the past two years with constant illegal connections by vendors. This had prompted several calls to the Guyana Power and Light to rectify the issued which the establishment fears can lead to millions of dollars in damages.
However, during the interview, a team from GPL came on site to rectify the issue. Over the last 13 years, the Guyana Power and Light Incorporated had removed thousands of illegal connections across Guyana. Illegal connections are against the law; it’s hazardous and can cause electrocution. To report illegal connection call GPL hotline 225-5251
