Chamber: Pay debts to PPL


CUSTOMERS who owe PNG Power Ltd (PPL) need to settle their debts so that the entity can operate and attend to its aging infrastructure, according to the Madang chamber of commerce and industry (MCCI).
Responding to queries from The National on the state of electricity supply in Madang, president Kevin Murray said the province had not been affected as much as other centres because PPL workers were always quick to respond in the event of an outage.
He said the biggest defaulters were State agencies.
Murray said the problem was with the aging infrastructure and PPL needed to generate revenue to maintain and upgrade the infrastructure and acquire new assets.
“I must say that the PNG Power workers here in Madang are very good, hard working people,” he said.
“When there’s fault somewhere it is reported and they respond quickly.
“Their infrastructures are very old and in need maintenance.”
