You have to give them credit — BPL has become very efficient in announcing when, where and why they cannot keep the lights on.

Q. Do the lights ever go out at BPL’s offices? Or the A/C?

Do you think New Providence will be experiencing this same foolishness again next summer? And despite the 3-5 hour power cuts the electricity bill has increased. Some customers say theirs have doubled. Are the power cuts a smoke screen to rip consumers off?
