At approximately 7:19PM on 11 May 2023, a generator trip resulted in an Island-wide electricity outage in Carriacou.

This resulted from a mechanical fault on one of two engines providing service to the island following the recent fire.

One generator is functioning, which has allowed Grenlec to restore electricity to significant portions of the island, including the Hospital.

Repairs are being done to the second generator, following which it will be tested before being put back into service. This will facilitate a complete restoration of service to all customers in Carriacou.

Grenlec apologises to customers for the inconvenience and thanks them for their understanding during this challenging period.

The Company assures customers that it is making every effort to install backup power to minimise these service interruptions.
