Creation of the Independent Regulatory Commission

In accordance with the Electricity Supply Act of 2006, Dominica’s Minister for Public Works and Public Utilities, the Honourable Ambrose George, appointed the members of the Independent Regulatory Commission on June 1, 2007. He then convened the Commission’s inaugural meeting on June 22, 2007. Since that time, the Commissioners have been meeting regularly with the goal of putting the necessary structures and policies in place to enable the Commission to fulfill its responsibilities under the Act. The Act empowers the Commission to regulate the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity in Dominica.

The Commission’s principal objective, as set out in the Electricity Supply Act, is to ensure that electricity is produced and delivered to all classes of consumers in an efficient, fair, reliable and environmentally sustainable manner. The Commission is also required to promote and facilitate the efficient use of electricity.
