All residents of Grand Bay are invited to a public meeting at the Grand Bay Community Centre on Wednesday, November 16, 2011 at 5:30 p.m..
The meeting is being spearheaded by the Independent Regulatory Commission (IRC), the body responsible for regulating the electricity sector in Dominica. This is the third in a series of meetings being held as part of the organization’s community outreach programme. Similar meetings have been held in Salisbury and Roseau.
The IRC is seeking to further sensitize residents about the work of the organization and their rights as consumers, as well as to obtain feedback from them about their electricity supply and supplier.
The Electricity Supply Act, No. 10 of 2006 established the IRC as the regulator for electricity supply in Dominica and empowers it with the responsibility for regulating prices, service standards and monitoring the performance of service providers of electricity. The IRC is also a forum for customer appeals in dealings with their electricity provider.
