Electric Vehicles This Way a Cometh?

Dean Barrow

The Prime Minister’s annual Independence Day address also serves as an opportunity for promises to be made, some of which his administration has delivered on and others that are yet to be fulfilled.  This year, the vow is to introduce electric vehicles to the country, an initiative that will be spearheaded by Belize Electricity Limited via a pilot project.  This, he says, guarantees to slash the fuel bill by fifty percent.  But is this an empty promise or is the country on the cusp of adopting green technology?  Here’s what he said on Saturday.

 

Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“And most exciting of all, testament to Belizean advances and innovation, our country will soon see the introduction of electric vehicles. Again, B.E.L. will lead the way, embarking shortly on a pilot project to introduce such vehicles to its own Belize City fleet. The company has already secured funds for a study on how best to roll out the charging stations that will be needed to service the electric vehicles. Dramatic news indeed, I think all will agree.”
