ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, April 28, 2016- GIS:  Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell says the sale of 20 lb LPG cooking gas by Petro Caribe will be a major boost for Grenada’s energy sector.

Prime Minister Mitchell was speaking during a ceremony on Tuesday signalling the start of sales.
The new 20 pound LPG Cylinders being introduced by the Petro Caribe Plant, is as a result of collaboration by the Governments of Venezuela and Grenada.

“We know that energy is a fundamental variable in economic development. It is also a major factor in the social development of our country,” said Prime Minister Mitchell.

“Therefore we believe that every opportunity that we get to reduce the cost of energy materials to our population must be taken”.
The cylinders which are said to be safe, convenient, light-weight and durable have been the topic of discussion, as many are anxious to take advantage.

 “We look forward to a consistent supply of liquefied gas, a consistent supply of cheaper energy. More development,” Dr.Mitchell said.

As Government continues to negotiate for cheaper energy cost, a series of consultation are taking place regarding the ‘New Electricity Supply Act’.
