Grenlec has a disaster plan to help minimise damage, speed recovery and keep customers and team members safe.

This preparation includes maintaining continuous collaboration with NaDMA, the Royal Grenada Police Force as well as other disaster agencies and utilities.  This facilitates effective collaboration and communication in responding to disaster threats and promoting restoration.

Our Company is also connected with other regional utilities through the Caribbean Electric Utilities Services Corporation (CARILEC). Through CARILEC, Grenlec both receives support from and provides assistance to other utilities when the need arises.

As part of the planning, every department in Grenlec is undertaking a series of activities, among them: tree trimming and maintenance to strengthen our system, making sure all our team members know the disaster plan and what they are expected to do, checking backup systems, stocking supplies and sandbags and maintaining a posture of readiness.

During the season, we urge you to keep listening to the official media and follow all advisories given by our disaster preparedness authority and Grenlec.
