We See Caribbean Challenges as Rare Opportunities
The Challenge is Also the Opportunity
It’s said history unfolds before our eyes but is the product of today’s choices. Given their impact on future generations, energy choices come with higher stakes. Doing it right takes holistic understanding to see beyond grid and balance sheet to people, and nowhere is the right choice more essential than in the Caribbean. Need is great, logistics formidable, wrong decisions inordinately costly and the consequences can be crippling. Here’s how REC helps.
