Letter to the Editor

In at least two press conferences DFID indicated that they are prepared to provide ‘’EXPERTS’’ to examine any proposals for the development of power systems here on Montserrat ‘’BRING THEM ON’’ say we, and the sooner the better. The island knows that one group has been asking the various administrations to provide the necessary documents to proceed with both a new diesel generation system and exploit Geothermal for Montserrat’s use. They started with education leaflets, expression of interest forms and various solutions over the last 5 years. We have no fear of competition as long as the playing field is LEVEL. DFID and the government have indicated that they have had many offers, two of which were rejected when details of their bids indicated they did not benefit the island only their company’s shareholders. The authorities MUST make it clear to all potential bidders that; All offers must be totally TRANSPARENT There must be NO confidentially clauses All offers will be presented to the people of Montserrat for their evaluation There shall be no hidden modifications to the specs as happened with the LIAT/WINAIR bids. The winner will be that which offers the best deal for the people of the island and retains the geothermal asset in the hands of the people now and in the future. Montserrat Geothermal are confident that their offer will be the best as it is based on a company established on Montserrat with its shares in the hands of the people and having a team dedicated to the provision of the maximum benefits for its shareholders——-

Montserratians here on island and in the wider diaspora. We must all remember three things

A) All companies are in business to make money for their shareholders

B) The shareholders in the case of Montserrat Geothermal are the people of Montserrat.

C) We all need power, no one can do without electricity.! Utilities are better than government bonds, they never fail. Which is more than can be said for banks and insurance companies.

We must all remember that we will only get one shot at this fantastic opportunity it will have huge and lasting effects on not only those here now but their children grandchildren and generations to come.

Yours looking to the future
