BARBADOS LIGHT & POWER (BL&P) says it will be keeping a close tab on all new solar energy installations on the island as Government’s much vaunted green energy policy has taken a new twist.
The maximum space of seven megawatts agreed to by the Fair Trading Commission (FTC) and Barbados Light & Power (BL&P) early last year has already maxed out as hundreds of homeowners and companies try to reduce their energy bills by using solar systems.
The BL&P has told installers of solar systems that it now has to manage the situation carefully in order to protect the quality of its fuel-based power systems. 
As a result, BL&P has been writing to customers who indicated more than three months ago that they planned to install solar systems to find out if they were still going ahead with the plans.
