    Hydro is certainly not the way forward for clean energy.
    The article above “highlights” this in a word “defunct”….1500Kw power plant.
    Wear and tear on gener😈ators water flows etc etc.

    Solar is certainly the first and best choice.
    Panels last for decades and battery technology makes storing power more
    feasable…..renewable.
    Have had my solar installation up and running in Spain nearly 2 decades now
    which provides me with as much electricity I need.

    Maybe guyana government should start manufacturing solar panels to replace its “defunct” sugar industry ! 😈

    Cane cutters and punters much prefer factory work on minimum wage.

    Apologies to cane cutters.

    As cynical as I be.
    Que sera

    Kamtan,your suggestion about the use of solar generated power is potentially a good one. As a result of Guyana’s proximity to the equator, solar power projects should be looked into as a viable source of energy. Also, wind generated power is another possible source.
    Guyana often appears to be deficient in getting thorough and effective cost justification reports prior to commencing with major projects. One white elephant that comes to mind is new the Skeldon Sugar Factory that proved to be a costly failure so far, much to the chagrin of the PPP/C government.
    The new Guyana government need to be more fiscally effective in administering all major projects and resuscitating old ones.
    In Guyana, too much money have gone down the drain as a result of incompetence, mismanagement, fraud, bribery and corruption. Recurrence of such deficiencies with funds would be unacceptable and devastating.
