Geothermal energy confirmed.
GEOTHERMAL ENERGY CONFIRMED. Officials of West Indies Power (WIP)
said at least two geothermal drill sites on Nevis have the capacity to
produce hundreds of megawatts of geothermal energy, reports Caribbean
Net News (Oct. 20, 2008). The confirmation came on Oct. 16, hours after
the passage of Hurricane Omar, when WIP's Nevis 3 well at Hamilton
Estate, came alive with steam. "The geothermal reservoir that
exists between Spring Hill and Hamilton Estates contains several hundred
megawatts of geothermal production capacity," said WIP's CEO Kerry McDonald.
