The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

St. Lu­cia Elec­tric­ity Ser­vices Lim­ited (LUCELEC)’s of­fices at Sans Souci will re­main closed on Mon­day and Tues­day next week (March 14 &15). This is to al­low the com­pany to con­tinue ef­forts to ad­dress sus­pected air qual­ity is­sues in the build­ing that led to its clo­sure on Tues­day, March 8.

Since the clo­sure, the Com­pany has taken var­i­ous mea­sures to re­solve the prob­lem, in­clud­ing work­ing with the Caribbean Pub­lic Health Agency (CARPHA) to con­duct a se­ries of tests in the build­ing.

LUCELEC’s Chief En­gi­neer Good­win d’Au­vergne says the pre­lim­i­nary re­sults of th­ese tests are likely to be avail­able on Mon­day af­ter­noon and will pro­vide guid­ance on the re­open­ing of the build­ing.

“The pre­lim­i­nary find­ings from CARPHA will de­ter­mine if it is safe for staff to re­turn to the build­ing. If we’re given the all clear, staff will go in on Tues­day, March 15, 2016 to re­or­gan­ise their work spa­ces so that we can re­turn to nor­mal ad­min­is­tra­tive op­er­a­tions, and we hope to be­gin serv­ing the pub­lic from our Sans Souci of­fices on Wed­nes­day, March 16, 2016. If not, we will de­ter­mine what ad­di­tional mea­sures need to be taken,” Mr. d’Au­vergne ex­plained.

In the mean­time, he adds, the ex­tended hours at the Com­pany’s Rod­ney Bay of­fice to en­sure cus­tomers are not un­duly in­con­ve­nienced will con­tinue un­til 6 p.m. Tues­day, March 15, 2016. He notes that LUCELEC’s Soufriere and Vieux Fort of­fices are op­er­at­ing nor­mally and are avail­able to serve cus­tomers.

LUCELEC fur­ther ad­vises that bill pay­ments can also be made at Sure Pay out­lets or via the fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions that of­fer that ser­vice. An au­to­mated ser­vice for cus­tomers to get their lat­est bill bal­ance may be ac­cessed by di­alling 4574433.

LUCELEC re­grets any in­con­ve­nience caused to its cus­tomers and thanks them for their un­der­stand­ing.
