Electricity Supply Services (Amendment) Act, 2015
The Electricity Supply Services (Amendment) Act revises the Electricity Supply Act of 1996, which gives an 80 year monopoly to the generation, transmission, distribution and sales of electricity to the Saint Lucia Electricity Services Ltd. It notably encourages the government to take appropriate regulations for the licensing and generation of energy production from renewables sources. The document defines renewables resources as being biomass, geothermal, heat, rain, sunlight, tides, waves and wind.
The Act authorises the government to adopt regulations favouring renewables fiscally, through specific license fees and feed-in tariffs.
