A recent presentation made by Sark Electricity Ltd’s (SEL) managing director, Alan
Witney-Price was held on Tuesday 20th September 2022 – 24 hours before Sark’s
government were due to vote on electricity proposals at an Extraordinary meeting that
was eventually not acted upon due to Chief Pleas not being quorate. Chief Pleas is now
following up with a meeting of its own only 24 hours prior to the rescheduled
Extraordinary meeting. The poster states that it to update residents regarding
discussions, progress and proposed approach towards Sark’s electricity supply.
However, this leaves very little time for any residents to make their views known to
Chief Pleas has been negotiating by consent the purchase of the local electricity supplier
though compulsory purchase legislation has also been enacted as a precautionary
measure. Sark’s Policy & Finance Committee now proposes to bring before the House
this week propositions that will lead to a new grid and new generation in competition
with the existing provider.
