Bahamas Power and Light (BPL) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Whitney Heastie told Eyewitness News Thursday that the corporation will not be load shedding this summer.

However, Heastie said, it does not mean that there will not be any blackouts, as aging equipment is not reliable.

He said the fact is, no one can predict when the company’s generators will fail.

BPL Chairman Darnell Osborne told Eyewitness News recently that all consumers can do is “pray”.
