Its main business is to generate and sell electricity to its customers. At the beginning it had only 2000 customers and a labour force of 150, both staff and manual workers. The company expanded rapidly due to joint ventures with sugar factories, which produced electricity with bagasse, a by-product of sugar cane, at a low cost compared to a much expensive cost of its rival company the General Electric Company, which uses petroleum products.
