Renewable Energy Rider of the Barbados Light & Power Co. Ltd.

The Fair Trading Commission is seeking the public’s views on the Barbados Light & Power Co. Ltd.’s (BL&P) proposed terms and conditions to govern a permanent Renewable Energy Rider (RER). These terms differ from those under the current pilot programme. The RER allows customers to sell, to the BL&P, any excess electricity generated from renewable sources.

A paper outlining the BL&P’s findings and recommendations is available from the Commission’s office and from here:
