As the nation continues preparations for Hurricane Beryl, Grenlec is advising about its plan to supply electricity. The Company’s goal is to keep the electricity on as long as possible once it is safe to do so.

For Carriacou and Mainland Grenada, the electricity system or parts of it will only be shut down if the storm starts to severely impact the system. Our team will be closely monitoring the situation and will act promptly to mitigate any risks.

In Petite Martinique, electricity will be taken off approximately one hour before the estimated impact of the storm begins. This proactive measure is to promote safety and protect the integrity of the electrical infrastructure.

While we are committed to keeping the electricity on as long as we can safely do so, we are also advising that given the severity of the system on the way, there is a likelihood that the entire system could be shut down at some point.

If the power goes out:

  • Turn off or unplug your appliances.
  • Keep your refrigerator and freezer closed to keep food cool.

We urge all our customers to take necessary precautions and to stay safe during this period. Please follow all official advisories and ensure you have emergency supplies and a safety plan in place.

For updates and further information, please stay tuned to official media sources for Grenlec communications.

Grenlec Tips for After the Storm:

  • Be alert and listen to the media for official instructions.
  • Use flashlights in the dark; do not use candles.
  • Assume all wires are energised and keep away from them. Avoid water that is in contact with electricity poles and lines.
  • If your home has sustained floor or water damage, and you can safely get to the main breaker or fuse box, turn off the power.
  • If appliances and electronics get wet, allow them to dry properly and check with your electrician before using them again.
  • Have a licensed electrician check your home for damage before restoring power.
  • Report damaged electrical poles and wires to Grenlec. Call 237, report to nearest office or Grenlec crew members.
