RA: Consultation On Electricity Plan Continues

October 3, 2018

The development of Bermuda’s Electricity Plan, the Integrated Resource Plan [IRP], has entered the next phase and alternative generation proposals are now published for public consultation, the Regulatory Authority said today.

“The IRP will forecast Bermuda’s future electricity demand and identify generation technologies to include in Bermuda’s future energy supply. Those technologies may be based on information recently submitted during this IRP process, in alternative proposals,” a spokesperson said.

“The process is now at the stage where the Regulatory Authority of Bermuda [Authority] will consider the alternative bulk generation and demand side resources [DSR] technology for inclusion in the IRP.

“Only technologies included in the IRP may be considered for future bulk generation or DSR when the need arises. At such time that the alternative generation is required, a tender process would be initiated for the suggested technology and interested parties will be invited to submit through a Competitive Bidding Procedure, as set by the Authority.

“Eight alternative proposals were received by the Authority in the IRP Proposal public consultation.

“A summary of the alternative proposals, along with each alternative proposal, is published on the Authority’s newly designed website here for public review and consultation.

“Stakeholders and the public are invited to comment on these alternative proposals between now and November 13th. Responses may be submitted by clicking the ‘Submit’ button on this page. All comments will be considered in developing the final IRP document.

Regulatory Authority’s Aaron Smith explained, “The IRP is an important document that will set the long-term plan for Bermuda’s electricity generation.

“To that end, the Authority will ensure that this process is all encompassing and that the information is as widely available as possible, to all residents. We urge interested parties to engage in the process before November 13th.”

    Good grief! Does the RA consult about consulting! I know this is important but what a ridiculously drawn out process. Hope they can beat sea level rises …
