Tok Piksa Episode – 6, 2014

In this episode:


This week, we feature an exclusive interview with PNG Power Chief Executive Officer, John Tangit, who acknowledges the cries of frustrated citizens whenever there is an unscheduled power outage, but who also explains, that reliability of constant power supply, comes at a high price.

Age old infrastructure, and historical performances are some of the biggest challenges that PNG Power faces yearly.


Tariffs, although a positive revenue raising measure for PPL, is usually the most contested amongst power consumers.But there's more to tariffs that we, as consumers, do not realize.


Alternative energy sources, are something that PNG Power has been canvassing.

And whilst water, and hydro-powered generators are our biggest assets, PPL is also looking into hybrid solar-powered units to run parallel to current diesel-powered stations.


PNG Power will always be the face of power supply in the country. But the responsibility of saving power, is one that should be shared by everyone.


As are llegal connections, which take a big bite out of PPLs revenue measures, and is an unnecessary human hazard.


Likewise, there are more intricacies in the process of opening new areas of power supply in the country.


The first in a series of monthly interviews, it is hoped that this drive by PNG Power Limited, to educate the public, will result in more understanding, and more efficient power supply throughout our country.
