BELCO have put forward a 20 year plan for the future of Bermuda's energy supply. This plan is Bermuda's default plan and will be implemented unless action is taken.
BE Solar commissioned an alternative plan by sustainability engineering firm Etude, known as the Bermuda Better Energy Plan. The only way this will be adopted is if you, and everyone you know, writes to the Regulatory Authority of Bermuda and supports the plan.
This website explains both plans and what you need to do to have your say on Bermuda's energy future.
THE BETTER ENERGY PLAN
Proposes that two thirds of electricity will be provided by solar and offshore wind technologies within 20 years. Energy demand is forecast to reduce by a third due to energy efficiency. Intermittent renewables will work with battery storage and Liquid Propane Gas (LPG) generation to provide a diverse yet secure and affordable supply of electricity.
BELCO 20 YEAR PLAN
Proposes to rely primarily on imported Liquified Natural Gas (LNG). This will require the construction of an industrial regasification facility. Renewable energy will not become a significant part of the generation mix. Bermuda will continue to rely on imported fossil fuel for decades.
