Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit says the construction of a geothermal plant on island should be A-political.
He is appealing to Dominicans to unite, despite differing views. He contends that geothermal energy development is in the best interest of the country.
The Government of Dominica is said to have taken a decision to go ahead alone, with the construction of a small geothermal plant in Dominica.
A geothermal resources development bill was passed in the House of Assembly this week, and to date, Government has spent over 80 million dollars exploring the island's geothermal potential.
Prime Minister Skerrit said based on the expert advice received, geothermal energy is the best option for Dominica at this time.
Skerrit said notwithstanding the challenges, the Government has continued to view geothermal development as a major priority.
