Prime Minister Gaston Browne has told today’s Budget Speech that homeowners owe APUA for electricity will have their debts wiped off.
Browne says the programme will apply to those who as of December 2017 had no electricity due to an inability to pay.
The amnesty will last for three months beginning February 14 and applies to people disconnected for 90 days or more.
In making the announcement Browne said, “my government is a caring government.”
People wishing to be reconnected would first have to pay a reconnection fee.
This is the second time in three years that such a programme is being offered under the Antigua Barbuda Labour Party administration.
In 2015 869 electricity consumers had their debts written off.
