Energy cap ‘too low’


Share post:

THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR of the Barbados Renewable Energy Association (BREA) has suggested that the renewable energy limit should be as high as 20 megawatts and not the seven megawatt cap instituted by the Fair Trading Commission.

Clyde Griffith said he feels it is possible the recently imposed limit has already been reached.

“Our difficulty is with the low level of megawatts that the FTC has approved – seven megawatts –  and that is virtually eaten up,” he said.

He made the comments today at a workshop for the launch of the Renewable Energy Consumer Guide Handbook for solar photovoltaic systems  at the Barbados Coalition of Service Industries, Harbour Road, St Michael.

The handbook was developed by Dr Tom Rogers and Jerry Franklin. (HLE)
