The people of St. Kitts & Nevis are entitled to a continuous supply of water, clean and reliable energy and respectable affordable housing. Water and energy are basic human needs and Labour is ready to continue to ensure these vital components of life and development are universally available obtainable and of a high quality. We will establish an Energy Conservation Commission to lead the charge in the renewable energy agenda of the Federation. Labour recognizes the importance of water conservation and will commence public education on that matter as well as the significance of protection of our water sources. Our watershed areas and aquifers will be reaffirmed as “Protected Areas” and a new plan will be established to restore 24/7 water supply for all of St. Kitts. We will reintroduce Labour’s original policy of submerging electricity distribution lines, wherever possible, to protect the distribution grid from hurricane damage. We will also explore the addition of reverse osmosis generated water to the public supply network. By utilizing basic water conservation techniques, we will be able to save thousands of gallons of water each year. With a growing population it is important to start this practice to allow for better living arrangements for future generations.
