In the Short Term

We knew that we immediately had to do something to address the reliability issues being experienced by residents of the island. Most notably, the issues customers faced with island-wide blackouts due to generation shortfall in the summer of 2010 could not be allowed to reoccur.

In April of 2011, 54 units of temporary rental generation were brought to Grand Bahama Island to supplant the existing generation.  The units, sourced from Aggreko who is a global leader in generator rental, represented an additional 35 MW of supplemental generation.  Reliability increased by 51% versus the same period in 2010
