1. In what way does Greenrock feel renewable energy may be beneficial to Bermuda?

Here are the primary benefits for developing renewable energy sources in Bermuda:

(1)  Stabilizing the cost of living: The cost of living in Bermuda is one of the highest in the world compared to big cities like Hong Kong, London, and New York City.  One of the reasons that make Bermuda so expensive is its cost of energy.  We rely heavily on a single source of energy produced by a private utility that primarily generates energy using fossil fuels - low grade oil and propane gas.  So from a social perspective, finding ways to produce energy from renewable source that is not exposed to the volatility of oil supply will be in the long run better for the people living in Bermuda.

Stuart Hayward, leader of the Bermuda Environmental Sustainability (BEST)If everyone went online to measure their carbon footprint, and made it a personal quest to keep this measure of environmental impact as small as possible, the Earth would be much better off. That's according to the leader of the Bermuda Environmental Sustainability (BEST), Stuart Hayward...

heritage_month_2010_sml.jpgGREENROCK says: We are proud to be part of this year's Heritage Month theme: Green: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. Greenrock has been working with the Department of Community and Cultural Affairs to help create a policy and launch a campaign for going "green". This Dept feels if we are expecting the public to accept and adopt good environmental habits then the department should offer clear evidence that Government too should practice and believe what Government preaches.
