From inception, Trinidad Generation Unlimited has focused on transforming the energy landscape of Trinidad and Tobago by building our business model on standards for successful international Independent Power Producers (IPPs).
On December 13th 2006 Trinidad Generation Unlimited was formed as a joint venture between the Union Estate Electricity Generation Company Limited (UEEGCL) – a wholly owned company of the Government of Trinidad and Tobago – and AES Corporation of the United States.

After the Alutrint project was cancelled however, all power was contracted to T&TEC. Now in its sixth year of commercial operations, TGU operates and manages the most efficient power plant in Trinidad and Tobago
