NAMPOWER CANCELS POWER CUTS

The NamPower Board of Directors today (8 February) resolved not to suspend power supply to a number of village, local and regional authorities with long outstanding accounts, as was initially planned and communicated by the utility in a media release last week.

NamPower planned on disconnecting the said customers at 10:00 today. The NamPower Board decided not to suspend power supply to the affected villages, municipalities and regional councils after most of them responded positively by paying their accounts and making the necessary arrangements to settle them.

The affected villages, municipalities and regional councils owed NamPower a combined amount of N$46.5 million. The amount outstanding now stands at N$29.7 million. NamPower will continue to engage the customers to settle their outstanding balances in due course or to make alternative payment arrangements.

While NamPower thanks the customers that responded positively to the call to pay their accounts, the utility encourages its customers to keep their accounts up to date to avoid being disconnected. The decision to suspend power supply to any customer owing NamPower is in line with the company’s Credit Policy and Debt Collection Strategy.
