    I am afraid to tell you that they are NOT!

    The rest of the world is steaming forward towards renewable energy futures. The Bermudian people, who have voted in the past and the majority are in favour of a transition towards 100% renewable sustainable energy, are once again being hoodwinked by protectionist regulations that were most likely written in conjunction with the TD&R’s input.

    Bermuda needs to post a “we are open for business” sign, a “we REALLY want you to come and invest and create jobs in the renewable energy sector” sign, a sign that says “our legislation and regulations welcome you”.

    We, the Bermudian people, see NONE OF THAT!!! Are we just sitting back waiting to sink and swim so a handful of investors in the TD&R get to run the energy sector?
