Government Is Committed to Addressing BELCO Emissions Issues

“I can advise that the Government, through the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, continue to be heavily involved with the Environmental Authority and BELCO to address the environmental issues impacting neighbours. The work is ongoing, and the public will be advised as soon as possible of the next steps.”

“To suggest that the Government has no interest in the impact of BELCO’s power plant emissions from their north Tower is an absolute falsehood. My only reference to the RA was in support of their recent public statement cautioning BELCO about information relating to and using Liquefied Natural Gas.”

“The issue of the choice of generation for the island is a matter that falls under the remit of the Regulatory Authority of Bermuda (RA) and is a matter for the RA to address. However, it had no bearing on the numerous justifiable complaints concerning the unacceptable situation area residents and businesses face from BELCO’s emissions.”
