    Our towns and villages are so dark due to Domlec’s high rates. But what’s worse is that businesses bo not move any aspects of their operations here because electricity is too expensive for them in Dominica. My friend runs a repackaging firm worth millions and would like to do some of its operations in D’a but fears Domlec’s high electricity rates, kills business ideas.

    Much more can be achieved by lowering their rates so that they can afford to leave at least one light on outside their homes for safety and security. Shameful.
