A Shin­ing Ex­am­ple

The Star (St. Lucia) - Business Week - - NEWS - BY CHRIS­TIAN WAYNE – ED­I­TOR AT LARGE

It’s not quite as hard as catch­ing light­ning in a bot­tle, but pre­dict­ing when in­no­va­tion will oc­cur, or where it will oc­cur, can be a tricky thing. That’s why our team was so in­trigued once we caught wind of LUCELEC’s plans to in­stall the coun­try’s first so­lar power farm in the south of Saint Lu­cia. Last month, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of LUCELEC Mr Trevor Louisy and his team broke ground on the EC $20m land­mark re­new­able en­ergy project with a sod-turn­ing cer­e­mony held in La Tour­ney, Vieux Fort. Be­gin­ning on page 1, The STAR Busi­ness­week learns what makes this so­lar project the most ad­vanced the re­gion has ever seen, and also how a paras­tatal util­ity com­pany be­came an un­likely in­no­va­tor. While Canada, Mex­ico and the US con­tinue ham­mer­ing out the de­tails of a re­vised North Amer­i­can Free Trade Agree­ment (see page 3: Pre­pare for NAFTA, Zom­bie Edi­tion), The STAR Busi­ness­week con­sid­ered the ques­tion: What would a Caribbean Free Trade Agree­ment look like and how likely is it? See What’s The Chance of a Caribbean Free Trade Agree­ment start­ing on page 2.
