Joey Ebanks appointed as new electricity regulator

Premier McKeeva Bush announced Tuesday that Joey Ebanks will be the new head of Cayman’s Electricity Regulatory Authority.

Mr. Ebanks said he would take up the role of the new managing director of the regulatory body on 1 May.

He replaces the late Philip Thomas, who passed away in September last year. Louis Boucher is currently the acting managing director of the Electricity Regulatory Authority.

Mr. Ebanks also chairs a new committee, along with government backbencher Cline Glidden, owner of an alternative energy home Jim Knapp and member of the Electricity Regulatory Authority Michael Herland, tasked with preparing for the introduction of a programme to provide solar power to 1,500 homes in Cayman.

The renewable energy programme will cost $15 million, Mr. Bush said, an amount he would seek in the next budget.

Mr. Bush announced Mr. Ebanks’ appointment at a press conference Tuesday at which he also announced that a draft national energy policy had been drawn up.

    absolutely correct, great smile- although Joey does know how to have a good time- too bad we will all be paying for it in the future as has been the case in the past.
