Profitable growth is critical for financial sustainability. CEC has a track record of almost continuous profitability since privatisation. CEC operates a highly capital-intensive business. The company’s continued operations and potential growth requires considerable investment. Profitability of the company has been coupled with an ongoing asset investment programme that is essential for maintaining the company’s robust network and providing customers with reliable uninterrupted supply that sustains the customers’ operations. CEC continuously re-capitalizes its infrastructure assets as well as ensuring high levels of maintenance.
In addition, CEC has made substantial investments in generation capacity, specifically in clean and renewable sources from hydro, solar and biofuel. New generation is required to meet the growing capacity and energy demand of the country and the diversification of the energy.
