PNG Power will maintain provision of electricity

PNG Power Ltd (PPL) will continue to maintain its electricity services nationwide amid threats by the PNG civil society groups about the disruption of essential services.

PPL said in a statement that it will not take part in any stop work or shut down of power supply as this is not an industry issue but a political fight.

“The threats have sparked fear and anxiety amongst electricity consumers of the impending power outage relating to the purported strike action. As the chief executive officer of PPL, I would like to assure electricity consumers and the general public that we will maintain the provision of electricity services and will not participate in such strike action,” CEO Chris Bais stated.

“As the electricity agency of the country, we are obligated to provide this important service to our people.”
