Barbados is a wonderful place to do business. There are numerous reasons why the island has a long history of attracting highly skilled and motivated entrepreneurial minds. The island’s legislative infrastructure is highly conducive to starting your own business. For starters, Barbados has a long history of social, political and economic stability. The island boasts a well educated and highly skilled workforce who can elevate your business and provide the kind of operational excellence that you need to associate with your brand. There’s also a low tax rate with no withholding taxes on dividends, and tax exempt capital gains. What’s more, barbados has a well developed tax treaty network with bilateral investment treaties in place with a number of countries including the UK. This, coupled with a generous residency program, makes expansion of your existing business from the UK into Barbados uncomplicated and tax advantageous.
Of course the beautiful weather, stunning scenery, vibrant culture and friendly locals also make living, visiting and doing business in Barbados all the more appealing. While it provides fertile soil upon which one can grow and cultivate a thriving business, the local mentality and pace of living is as far from the stress-driven rat race as it’s possible to get.
Yet, while the island has a great deal to offer ambitious entrepreneurs, doing business in Barbados has its own caveats, too. In the 21st century, every business is a tech business, and your business operations are only ever as strong as your technological infrastructure. This is why it’s of paramount importance to.
Barbados Power Generators
The old adage that time is money has never been more appropriate. For this reason, businesses are always finding new ways to enhance their productivity and increase their output without over-straining their human resources. Inevitably, this means an increased reliance on technological infrastructure. And the more our operations rely on electronic and digital technologies to do business, the more crippling a power outage can be.
And Barbados gets a lot of power outages!
The island’s situation, topography, climate and wildlife create a wide array of challenges when it comes to keeping homes and business powered, and the existing infrastructure has proven on multiple occasions that it struggles somewhat in the face of adversity. In the wake of a particularly prolonged and embarrassing power outage last year, Editor-In-Chief of the Daily Nation Eric Smith wrote;
“Power outages have become too frequent in Barbados… The majority of businesses are unprepared for power blackouts such as last week Monday’s which would have impacted restaurants, service stations, dental and healthcare providers and a wide range of other operations and households… We are living in a hurricane belt where we are exposed to an act of God, and a power system with no guarantees.”
This is why power generators, diesel generators and portable generators are an essential investment for any enterprise that hopes to expand its operations to Barbados. Let’s take a look at the unique challenges that Barbados represents to your business’ smooth operations and how you can insulate yourself from risk by choosing the right power generator for your needs.
Barbados’ electrical infrastructure can be fragile. Exposure to corrosion, damage from people or vehicles, bad connections, fallen trees or simple wear and tear can result in widespread outages which may leave your business without power for hours at a time.
What’s more, The Barbados Light & Power Company Ltd. (the predominant power supplier on the island) occasionally schedules planned outages to carry out routine maintenance on its power lines and poles. While this is timed to minimise disruption to homes and businesses, and consumers are notified in advance, it can nonetheless prove a disruption to your business.
Barbados’ tropical weather may help to generate a steady influx of tourists to the island all year round, but it also represents unique challenges to businesses. Situated on a hurricane belt, power outages can also be caused by strong winds and rain blowing down trees into power lines. What’s more, the heat and humidity can exacerbate corrosion which could further compromise the electrical infrastructure. Your business needs to be profitable all year round, not just in fair weather. This is why an electrical power generator is an essential investment for sustainable profits.
Finally, although Barbados’ charming and beautiful wildlife makes for some great holiday snaps, it can also create problems of its own when it comes to the island’s power infrastructure. Earlier this year, for example, the island was struck by a power cut after playful green monkeys tripped a circuit breaker that knocked out power to surrounding businesses at peak trading hours. Animal lovers will be delighted to learn that the monkey electrocuted in the incident made a complete recovery. Nonetheless, the unpredictable nature of this incident should give business owners pause.
Of course all of the above are potential challenges to any electrical infrastructure, but the risk is elevated on small islands like Barbados. As such, investing in the right power generators can help to mitigate this risk and keep your business fully operational.
What kinds of businesses need a Barbados Generator?
In short, all businesses can benefit from having their very own generator on-site in Barbados. However, our range of gas, petrol and diesel generators should be considered absolutely essential for;
- Commercial businesses where a loss of power will impede your ability to trade.
- Manufacturing operations for which a stall in production could result in missed quotas and major losses
- Mining companies for which an underground power failure could have far reaching safety and logistical consequences
- Agricultural operations which are often far from mains power and require a reliable back-up
- Data Centres and offices with on-site servers, where a consistent power supply is essential to prevent data loss.
