Crowds Gather at Reopened Offices of Greece’s Main Power Company

ATHENS, — Police in Greece have intervened to ease crowding conditions outside offices of the country’s main power utility which reopened Monday.

Hundreds gathered outside the offices to pay their bills, worried that power would be cut off to their homes.

The state-controlled Public Power Corporation is urging customers to use online payment methods or newly-expanded call center services, but many elderly customers still pay their bills directly in cash.

The utility is currently undergoing a major reorganization after being threatened with financial collapse last year, largely due to bills left unpaid during the 2010-2018 financial crisis and austerity imposed during international bailouts.

PPC offices closed on March 23 as part of broader lockdown measures.
