Power Issues

Kavieng MP asked to address power issues

Owner of the Venbert Cottage and Putput Treehouse, Steven Lavarabin, stressed that continuous power issues are affecting business operations in the province.

“This is his town and he should really support us.

“Most of the local operators, they cannot afford to buy 50kVA (kilovolt-amps) generators, or 10kVa.

“When you look at it, it’s not our problem. My goodness, we’re paying tax! 

“The government of the day and the Open Member should provide for these facilities. We pay rent to the Lands Department, for lease, we pay water bills, we pay power.”
