A Shining Example
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.
