ZIZ News — The St. Kitts Electricity Company Limited [SKELEC] has been described by Business World Magazine as having moved from taking “baby steps to giant leaps.”
The eight-page feature compared the company to a three year old child saying “it’s growing into its body. It’s learning to use devices at its disposal. And, perhaps most importantly of all, it looks wide-eyed toward the future and a day when it has mastered all its skills.”
The soon to be implemented “smart meters” to record electricity usage and supervisory control and data acquisition [SCADA] which provides real-time island-wide system overview, control and substation information to increase reliability and enhance troubleshooting capability, were also mentioned.
According to the article, “SKELEC strives to be a model for larger Caribbean neighbours.”
