Light and power company DOMLEC is refuting claims that it is dragging its feet on negotiations for a new license.
The Independence Regulatory Commission (IRC) told a press conference recently that DOMLEC had not taken up invitation to begin negotiating for a new license.
But DOMLEC General Manager Colin Cover says the company is simply carrying out investigations before it can enter into any new license.
“The IRC sent us draft licenses in January and the licenses have some terms which we had to think a lot about. We could just have said no but since they put all of that together, we figured they must have had good reasons,” Cover said.
He said DOMLEC is willing to meet with the IRC to further discuss the matter.
“We have been working diligently with this and we will soon be able to put some alternatives on the table with the IRC,” he said.
