The PNG Power Mt Hagen branch has been conducting a weeklong awareness throughout Western Highlands province to inform people to stop practicing illegal power connection.

The awareness is to educate people on the normal procedure of connecting power and not to do illegal connections because it was dangerous.

They also warned people that if they were caught doing illegal connections, they would face the consequence.

The staff also said illegal connection was part of the contributing factor to power blackouts and the people must stop doing that.

They called on the people who have power connections through illegal means to come forward to follow the normal process and formally register with PNG Power to receive electricity.

The staff are conducting an awareness on this and are providing avenues for people with illegal power connections to come forward to register.

The power workers said they are giving the public in Mt Hagen and other parts of Western Highlands Province until today to come and register with them before disconnections on illegal power connections begin next week.

They said one reason for frequent power blackouts is because there are many illegal power connections disturbing power flow.

PNG Power Mt Hagen office said it is now moving to identify and disconnect all illegal power connections throughout Western Highlands Province.
