Public and companies comment on energy plan

The Regulatory Authority of Bermuda received about 800 responses from a public consultation on Bermuda’s blueprint for power generation in the future.

The six-month consultation period on the Integrated Resource Plan ended on November 30.

A spokeswoman for the authority said last night that the majority of submissions were “copies of a template response provided to the public by one of the eight commercial entities that submitted a proposal for alternative generation technologies, BE Solar”.

The energy industry watchdog has posted many of the responses on its website here, including drawings submitted by children.

The rest will be added this week.

The spokeswoman said the RAB has started to analyse all the proposals and the public on their technical, economic, environmental and social merits.
