Quotes

...Solar Farm concept is that it exemplifies one way global, national, and statewide energy problems lend themselves to local solutions," Boyce said. "The BMU solar program is a positive step towards renewables in our community. The 246 panels provide just about enough energy to offset the use of electricity in 12 or so average households."
"Energy costs have been on the increase and most people would expect that to continue, so when we look over the life of the system, it's really attractive" he said
"This development will create jobs, provide thousands of households with affordable, renewable power and inject around $137 million into the local economy."
"Our mantra from the beginning has been self sufficiency and we have not strayed away from this course," said Mr. Forbes, "This move to our new headquarters is a demonstration of our sincerity to this ideal. We are proud to be the owners of the building, which now houses our headquarters. Our solar panels are producing a considerable amount of electricity and this will substantially reduce the cost of electricity BAIC consumes from the Bahamas Electricity Corporation. This is another aspect in which BAIC is a trail blazer."
