BL&P dismisses fuel charge


Share post:

BARBADOS Light & Power (BL&P) has dismissed the notion that its use of expensive jet fuel to generate a portion of the power supply is significantly impacting consumers’ electricity bills.
Rather, said chief marketing officer Stephen Worme, it was saving consumers from paying more in the long run.
In an interview with the MIDWEEK NATION, Worme explained that while jet fuel was more expensive, the frequency with which it was used, and the costs associated with the generators that utilized it, made it more cost effective for BL&P and, in turn, consumers.
His comments came in response to Government Senator Jepter Ince’s contention recently that if BL&P used five per cent or more of jet fuel to generate electricity, customers would continue to see their bills spiral. (DP)
