Greenrock and BE Solar has joined forces to encourage Bermuda’s public to get their views heard before a final decision is made on Bermuda’s energy future.

They will be hosting a public meeting this Thursday, November 8 at St Paul’s Centennial Hall in Hamilton from 5:30pm,

A public discussion will be held with presentations, followed by a question and answer session at 6pm. Refreshments will be provided and there are door prizes as well,

BE Solar has also commissioned a presentation by Etude, a UK based Sustainability Engineering Firm to develop the Bermuda Better Energy Plan.

The Chamber of Commerce will also share the findings of a recent study on Bermuda’s economy as it relates to energy.

Director of Greenrock, Eugene Dean said today: “The Energy IRP Process was created to develop a plan that will govern energy generation and distribution in Bermuda for the next 20 years.

“BELCO was required to write the plan and Etude have produced an alternative, the Bermuda Better Energy Plan. What does the outcome of the IRP mean for our children? Is the IRP process something we all need to learn about? What do the proposed plans entail? How can Bermuda residents have an influence on the final decision?

“As an organization, Greenrock aims to raise awareness and educate the broader community on critical issues relevant to sustainability and as a result we are hosting the meeting this Thursday night. If you need answers to any of the aforementioned questions please be sure to join us. We fully endorse the plan submitted by Etude and having them on the island to present is an opportunity that we cannot afford to miss.

“This is about our future Bermuda, and if we have learned anything from our recent history, we would know just how important it is for us all to get involved, before it’s too late.”
