Minister Sears expressed thanks to Dr. Moxey and the outgoing board of the two entities and welcomed the new board members.  

 
He spoke of the Government’s “ambitious” target to achieve 30 percent of the power generation comprising renewable energy by 2030, particularly in light of the effects of Hurricane Dorian.
 
He said the goal is one that must be achieved, and resilience must be built: “we are fighting for the survival of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas.”
