As stated by the CDB, the project will reduce street and flood lighting energy consumption and associated greenhouse gas emissions in St. Kitts and Nevis; and enhance the capacity of the St. Kitts Electricity Company Ltd. and the Nevis Electricity Company Ltd. in climate change adaptation planning.
According to the CDB's disclosure, the European Investment Bank is co-financing the project through its European Investment Bank-Climate Action Line of Credit (EIB CALC) with an amount of USD 3.57 million, and the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis with USD 617,000.
As stated on the company's website, the St. Kitts Electricity Company Limited (SKELEC), is a public utility that provides electric power generation, as well as transmission and distribution services to St. Kitts. SKELEC transitioned from a government department on August 1, 2011 acquiring the operations and assets of the St. Kitts Electricity Department.
The Nevis Electricity Company Limited is the sole provider of electricity on the island of Nevis. The company, which opened its doors on September 1, 2000, is a fully owned subsidiary of the Nevis Island Administration. NEVLEC began its operation with the aim of providing quality electricity service to the island of Nevis. Since then, we have grown tremendously in power generation, transmission and distribution, and in the level of service we provide to our customers.
