The Ministry of Communications, Work, Energy and Labour has released its first edition of their energy newsletter.
The newsletter, was published in early December and provides updates on the ministry’s plans for several green energy projects, which include geothermal and solar.
Minister with responsibility for energy Paul Lewis, said “the key benefit to be had for Montserrat with this renewable energy push is that we are seeking to transform our country and our economy by providing a resource where cheaper and more efficient energy can be implemented.”
He added that “the end game is towards increasing industry and business prospects for the island that will bring companies in that need cheaper energy to provide jobs for both our people, and to attract our people abroad to return home. We are also keen, and committed to providing more affordable energy for our local residential and commercial customers.”
