The Fair Trading Commission is seeking public input on its determination of feed-in-tariffs (FITs) for the supply of renewable energy (RE) from various sources.

The creation of FITs will contribute to the achievement of one of the critical goals in the Barbados National Energy Policy, i.e. to achieve 100% energy generation from RE by the year 2030. The introduction of a pricing framework which facilitates the move to RE is therefore a contributor to this target. Based on stakeholder discussions, the FIT methodology was identified as the basis upon which RE tariffs for installations sized 1MW and under would be set.

As part of this evaluation process, the Commission will consider written comments from interested parties on a number of matters, which are outlined in the consultation document. Comments should be submitted no later than 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 19, 2019. The Commission is unable to accommodate any deadline extensions. Copies of the consultation paper may be viewed here or obtained from the Commission’s office between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Submissions should be sent to:

Chief Executive Officer
