Consumer Justice Group to Hold Virtual Meeting on WAPA LEAC Increase

 

The Virgin Islands Alliance for Consumer Justice will host a virtual meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 22 on its Facebook page to discuss the recent decision by the Public Services Commission to grant the V.I. Water and Power Authority a LEAC rate increase.

The LEAC, or Levelized Energy Adjustment Clause, allows the V.I. Water and Power Authority to recover costs associated with its fuel consumption and related expenses. At its meeting on June 21, the PSC approved a 2.1 cent increase in the LEAC, to 17.215 cents.

Thursday’s meeting also will discuss the alliance’s recent action to get the PSC to reconsider its decision and to give members of the community a hearing or commenting period to express their concerns and opinions, according to a press release the group issued on Wednesday.

On Monday, July 19 the Virgin Islands Alliance for Consumer Justice sent a letter, written by various members of the community, to the PSC requesting that it reconsider its decision to grant WAPA the LEAC rate increase that became effective on July 1. Letter filed with PSC on July 19, 2021

“Virgin Islanders pay the highest electrical rate in the United States and Caribbean region (a rate of 43 cents) for the worst service. WAPA’s high electric rates and frequent service interruptions negatively impact the territory’s residents, especially small businesses, the elderly living on fixed income and those with health issues,” the alliance said in its press release. “We encourage members of the community to attend and engage so that we may learn how we can get our needs and demands met.”

Thursday’s meeting will be hosted via the V.I. Alliance for Consumer Justice’s Facebook page starting at 6:30 p.m.

Cute as a button. Darling little princess. Please protect them

Make sure they Mask 😷 up.

Loving and trusting someone is such a risk and i don't wish any woman to be in the same shoes as i was sometime back when I caught my husband red-handed with my own best friend in our own bed. I couldn't believe it when I saw it and my heart started beating so fast and felt like my body is shaking then I ran straight to my elder sister's house. I cried so much and my sister left me to cry and told me it would help ease the pain I was feeling. Then she sat me down and asked me if I still love my husband and I told her yes of course, and she told me that we all learn and grow through mistakes and no one is perfect and told me that if I wanted my man back I should fight for him and never trust friends again.My sister told me to contact profisma+27783320386 who had helped her husband with financial issues and told me he will help me bring my man back. It took me weeks to think about it because we come from a strong religious background but things worsened because I could not even concentrate at work and i got fired, and after that, i remembered what my sister had told me about consulting with him. That's when I contacted him and told everything, he listened, and told me that he will solve all my problems in 48 hrs. Since it was my first time doing this, i could not believe his words just like that but i had to wait until the time he had promised. I was asked to buy materials to help me which I did, we begun the prayer and results were delivered in three days. My husband called me and asked me where I was, and he came straight to me and confessed how my best friend seduced him, and he was sorry to fall into her trap and showed me all the messages my best friend was sending to him and promised never to see her again and promised to love me and only me. That evening he took me to a romantic dinner, Since prophet isma helped me, I got a better paying job than the previous one, my husband is back to the old man I used to know and he loves me so much and does everything to see that am happy. Thank you so much prophet, your spells indeed work. If you're going through struggles, you can text him on WhatsApp +27783320386 or call him
