  1. I hate to be the kill-joy but for a “renewable energy developer, providing Caribbean clients with cost effective and reliable RE power generation solutions” can anyone tell me where Solamon Energy Corp has ever built one of their arrays?
    Their website looks great but lacks any information about what they have done. Is this anything to do with the fact that their President seems to be from a business development and marketing background?

  2. I sent off your comment to the folk who issued the statement – we’ll see what develops?

  3. St George’s Dragon, I would like to discuss a PV business idea to you. You know the right questions to ask. I like that.
