    "We look at ways to help customers better manage their energy…I like to see people happy."

    Advancing Technologies - Innovation
    To Chief Engineer Clive Hosten, who joined Grenlec in 1988, improving system efficiency and increasing renewable energy are critical strategies for maintaining reliability and stabilising costs. To date, more than $220 million has been invested in the infrastructure of the electricity system to more than double installed capacity, peak load, and customer connections over the last 23 years. With the recent completion of Grenada’s largest single solar PV project to date, renewable energy generation is now at 7.5%+ of peak demand with more clean energy sites in the pipeline.

    "Our customer-owned renewable energy programme and falling prices for solar installations have helped to increase renewable energy. We are continuing to work with all partners to successfully overcome the challenges of small island states in increasing renewable energy generation in a cost-effective way,"says Clive Hosten.
