Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


Can you believe this, Domlec goes on local radio encouraging people to use their generators to produce their own power. My-my-my things have change. I can recall a situation where a local hotel in Dominica decided to produce their on power by using there generator and Domlec was totally against the idea.

Cut the BULL-SH**T DOMLEC – your company made EC$ 6.24 MILLION IN PROFITS this financial year on the backs of a population less than 65,000 – ONLY IN DOMINICA PEOPLE WILL STAND FOR THIS NON-SENSE. With this kind of profits every year, Domlec is still relying on hydro plants to produce electrical power. If so, it’s not reflected on consumers electricity bills at the end of the month.

With all the un-scheduled power outage be Domlec in May, I’m pretty sure consumers will be scrutinizing their electricity bill at the end of the month – I’m going ahead and predict the bills are higher. History has shown that the more power outages there are Domlec in one month, usually result in higher electricity bills. I could be wrong… or not 🙂

We have been hearing for awhile now about climate change and the effects which it is having on the environment and with hiking oil prices and governmental policies have triggered an environment for the investment in renewable energy.

Global trends investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy seems to have brought renewable revolution right to our doorstep, but is it late for this renewable revolution.

A report by the United Nations (UN) claims that clean energy could provide almost a quarter of the world’s electricity by 2030. Renewable sources today produce about 2% of the world’s energy, they now account for about 18% of the world investment in power generation, with wind generation at the investment head. Follow by Solar and Bio-fuel energy technologies, which are growing at quicker paste than wind.

Around 40% of the capital invested in solar went towards new technology development. In bio-fuels, the proportion was about 20%, reflecting a surging corn-based ethanol industry in the U.S., as well as research into second-generation bio-fuels, including cellulosic ethanol.

Many developing countries seem to be turning towards renewable energy! A healthy 9% of global investment was made in China. India is lagging a little behind china, and with Latin America taking 5% of the global investment, most of which financed the Brazilian bio-ethanol plants.

But nonetheless renewable energy is maybe our only hope in saving our environment and our resources. Climate Change is like a cancer and everyone on this planet is going to be effected by it. If we shift from fossil fuels to renewable fuels it’s definitely going help the environment and maybe we can save our plant for another 200 years.
