The Minister commented, “I have been eagerly learning as much as possible about each sector of Bermuda’s energy matrix.

“As the Ministry responsible for energy, we are involved in the development of policy, legislation and regulation that will secure Bermuda’s energy future. Right now, we have some of the highest energy costs in the world, but there is always a way forward.”

      Sadly you’re going to have to keep on waiting. The good minister of transport and his party colleagues are more interested in photo shoots, creating and moving holidays and making international headlines then worrying about everyday Bermudian (At least until the next election is called). For them, the only transport problem occurs when their GP car get caught in traffic.

    Trust me! Roban Does not have a clue when it comes to Energy policy. Touring a fuel plant that has spills and uses the most basic of technologies is not going to move Bermuda’s energy policy in the right direction or lower the cost of Energy or Transport! What a waste of time!!!!

    One would think he would tour Rubis in order to get an update on the Spill experienced last year.
