We are looking at a gift horse in the mouth on electricity


Dear Sir,

Has anyone noticed that the wind has been blowing in Bermuda at between 15 and 35 knots almost every day and night, for the past three months, as well as for the past year and for the past 50 years ó throughout each year.

How is it possible that, as one of the most advanced and wealthy countries in the world, we do not have hundreds of offshore wind turbines to generate our electricity?

And has anyone noticed that the sun shines rather a lot, for many hours almost every day. Where are all the photoelectric cells to catch all that lovely solar energy and convert it into electricity?

Let us hope that Bermuda will get its act together soon.

There are several countries far less wealthy than we are who are approaching 100 per cent reliance on renewable energy. How come we are living in the dark ages?

Letís get the show on the road.
