Government is moving ahead with plans for an independent company to produce electricity for Bartica, a Region Seven community up the Essequibo River.
According to a notice by the Hinterland Electrification Company Inc., published in Kaieteur News yesterday, the government is proffering proposals that target renewable energy.
Bartica’s power company has been suffering for some time now, leading to the previous government announcing plans for engines.
The community once considered the gateway to the interior and to the logging and mining camps, is set to become a town this year.
According to the request for renewable proposals, Government’s plan is to “green” Bartica.
To build the generation system, the search is on for an independent power producer to design one. The proposals will likely use renewable energy technology, like wind or hydro electric power, or even a combination.
The arrangements will have to be under a Build Own Operate and Transfer (BOOT), with a power purchase agreement to be negotiated and agreed on.
The application information can be downloaded from the Hinterland Electricity website www.electricity.gov.gy.
Guyana is looking to move away from the expensive, imported fossil fuel-based engines and more into renewable energy like wind, solar and hydroelectric.
