BL&PS’ Worme calls for patience
As Barbados joins the rest of the world in exploring and implementing alternate sources of energy, Stephen Worme, chief operating officer of Barbados Light & Power Company Limited (BL&P) is calling on residents to have patience.

“There are a lot of factors that will have to be addressed to get some of these systems in place, because it is not only the willingness of the consumers, it is also the willingness of the financers and the policies that government set.
