Private water and power company Utico is offering 100% deferment of utility bills to consumers who have lost their jobs because of the Covid-19 crisis.
The company said it stands with all consumers who are facing difficulty at these times.
“We have supported them by offering 100% bills deferment till they find new jobs,” said Richard Menezes, CEO of Utico.
“However, we have asked these consumers to benchmark their consumption to Green Standards and reduce use to gold standards. If they meet these consumption standards per UN and WHO metrics, a further reward will be offered on a case by case basis."
Utico has also offered some affected hospitality consumers who are at standard tariffs 30% deferment of their invoices.
“This crisis has spared no one. Hence it is imperative that all work to support one another in this country to tide over these times. This crisis will end and it will bring more prosperity to all those who think and act accordingly,” Menezes added.
