Government Slow On Renewable Energy
September 26, 2008 2 Comments
We congratulate Hander Callender on his most incentive and promising venture. With a vision he took the bull by the horns and conceptualized a biodiesel operation, Native Sun NRG, with the primary purpose of reducing the costs of fuel to small business and vehicles owners.
Unlike some businesses that go begging to government for everything under the sun, a little exposure in the media landed him a deal with an American company with like interest resulting in a new company called Amelot Oil Barbados Ltd.
However as is usually the case, governments are always slow when it comes to these sort of things. By that I mean small man operations. The kind of thing that will made a different in people’s lives. Oh wait. No big dollars there. Never mind the the big speech on increasing the % of entrepreneurs in Barbados. A little encouragement goes a long way. Makes a man feel good. Expressing keen interest is not sufficient. Let’s hear publicly government endorsing of such a project and be serious on reducing our reliance on fossil fuels. Anything short of that would give bajans the wrong impression!
BTW, did anyone close to Mr Callender read the article on the blog or is the Nation just being facetious?
