Kingstown, St. Vincent (ONE NEWS SVG) – The Buildings, Roads and General Services Authority – BRAGSA, says it is collaborating with the St. Vincent Electricity Services Ltd – VINLEC to provide electricity to less fortunate households with students.
The connections are being done under a project called the ‘Access to Electricity for Students’, BRAGSA says.
“Under this project, electricity will be provided to 72 households in St. Vincent, Bequia and Union Island for the school year,” BRAGSA states on its Facebook page.
BRAGSA says the project will include the installation of fixtures and fittings for lights and outlets, along with some minor structural works to facilitate installations.
It is not immediately clear if electricity will be supplied totally free of cost.
