SKELEC announces load reduction exercise

Basseterre, St. Kitts (20th May 2024)—The St. Kitts Electricity Company (SKELEC) Ltd wishes to advise that one of our generators developed a fault leading to a shortfall in generation capacity at our Needsmust Power Generation Plant resulting in the need for the implementation of a load reduction exercise. Our Generation teams are working tirelessly to increase capacity as soon as possible.

Customers are asked to pay attention to our social media pages, website and media outlets nightly for the load reduction schedule for the next day. Please note that the electricity supply may be interrupted later and restored earlier than the scheduled times. SKELEC takes every precaution to protect customer appliances from damage during outages; we however, encourage our customers to safeguard their equipment and appliances at all times.

SKELEC apologizes for any inconvenience this exercise may cause and solicits your patience and understanding as we navigate this period. For more SKELEC updates please visit our Facebook page: SKELEC- St. Kitts Electricity Company Ltd.
