Riots on Roatan!

The tiny island of Roatan, one of the Bay Islands of Honduras has erupted is chaos after the new American owners of the islands power company, RECO, raised the price of kilowatts by as much as 150%. The Islands power company has been for years saddled with huge debt, and faulty polluting generators. The price increases have caused small riots and many small roadblocks. The cruise ships that come to the island have not been docking, and some have been re routed for the future. As well there have been more and more power outages on Roatan, where the power is already the most expensive in the world. More and more Islanders are looking to solar power, Evergreen Energy of Roatan recently hired two sales people one on each of the largest of the bay islands, Roatan and Utila.

E.J. Proctor has been a member of the West End community for years, working as a dive instructor at Luna Beach and West End Divers before coming to help us out. Andy Phillips is a world famous Tec diver instructor, who has been a partner in the Utila Dive Center since the eighties! His sound expertise has guided thousands of divers, and we are looking forward to his help.

It’s shaping up to be a very interesting season down here!
