I am a former ship’s engineer who routinely produced electric power as one aspect of the job using both steam turbines and diesel units.   Presently I am sitting in a 500KW hydroelectric plant that I built in Vermont.   When I sell my home and business here I shall retire and live on Montserrat. So you might say, I have some expertise and an interest in Montserrat and her people.

First, I’d like to say Chris Lynt’s recommendation of solar and small wind is very viable and can be a personal solution to the power problem.  Solar panels have come way down in price from just a few years ago.   Wholesale I recently bought over 6KW of panels for 5200 US dollars.  That is 30 panels at 215 watt each. Larger quantities can be bought even cheaper.

Secondly I’d like to say there are always expensive options and cheaper options.  When people are allowed freedom to choose, cheaper and better options are usually found.   Inhibiting freedom to choose, or putting high taxes in place always makes for higher costs.

Thirdly there are many surplus diesel units available which could be bought for a small fraction of the price of this new 1.5MW unit being purchased.

Fourthly if asked I will assist in finding low cost solutions as long as long as the freedom to chose all options isn’t inhibited.
