Electric Light and Power Act, 2013 and Electric Light and Power (Amendment) Act, 2015
The new act liberalises the power sector, as independent power producers are allowed to supply the country alongside the Barbados Light and Power Company under a licensing scheme. Interconnection is promoted.
ELPA charges the Minister to determine minimum and maximum supply targets. These governmental targets are not included in the act itself. They include an objective of renewable energy share of primary energy to be above 30% by 2020.
The Electricity Light and (Amendment) Act, 2015 is the current version in force.
