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.
Spearheading the company’s efforts were Mr. Earle Kelly – first Chairman of the Board of Directors, Mr. Russell Tyson – first General Manager, Mr. Lindolph Murray – first Generation Engineer, Mr. Cartwright Farrell – first Transmission & Distribution Manager and Ms. Maureen Webbe – first Customer Service Manager.
In the year 2002, NEVLEC moved its Administrative Office from Charlestown to a more suitable location at the Pinney’s Commercial Site. In that very same year, we saw the expansion and construction of the already existing Power Station. Upon completion in 2003, we commissioned our first Wartsila generator, which is also the largest and most reliable generating set we have to date. This marked the begining of a new era for the Nevis Electricity Company Limited as it is with this engine that we have been able to improve and maintain the level of efficiency in electricity generation over the last three years.
With the desire to continually exceed customers’ expectations and improve the quality of service provided to our valued customers, NEVLEC took things to another level. In 2005, new Billing and Accounting Systems were introduced to further assist our already competent staff in performing their duties to our valued customers. The Emergency Operations Service was also implemented with our customers in mind. A Strategic Alliance was formed with our CARILEC counterpart Lucelec, and several members of staff have benefited greatly affiliation.
Nevlec is now living up to its motto of working towards a brighter future for all of its valued customers.
