Government will seek to move to another stage in the implementation of the geothermal project within the next few months.
The results of the investigations to date have proven that the quality and quantity of the geothermal resource in the Wotten Waven area are extremely favourable and encouraging for generating electricity in Dominica.
Hon. Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, told a delegates conference on Sunday that considerable progress have been made to commence test drilling in the Water Waven area by July of this year.
“Preliminary reports from the experts fuel our optimism that the results of the drilling exercise will be successful. Consumers can thus look forward to a substantial reduction in their electricity bills in the medium to long term.”
Government will endeavour to make the necessary adjustments to facilitate the importation and transportation of the drilling rig and other equipment to access the drill sites and address matters that relate to private lands that may be affected. cont./
