Gov’t to go alone with geothermal plant (Dominica News Online)

Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has revealed that government will go ahead alone in constructing a small geothermal plant in Dominica.

Speaking during the debate on the Geothermal Resources Development Bill in parliament on Monday, he said the government will take all risks associated with the construction of the facility.

“The government will go it alone with regards to this small plant,” he said.

Skerrit said over the past years the government has been in negotiations with different people on the project but things did not work out due to “other considerations.”
