      Haters haters haters!! You cannot keep a good man down. BVIEC performance is commendatable. Leroy keep your head high. Who JAH bless not MAN can Curse. We cover you and your entire staff and every piece of equipment under the blood of JESU. It took fortitude perserverance and determine and of course your exemplary leadership skills to have your entire team do what no other Caribbean island that experience the force of the hurricanes last year could have accomplished. God grace mercy and direction is sufficient for you. I am so very proud of your. You are a great example to what Leadership is. This is the type of leadership we need in our territory to carry us through.

      Everyone speaks about renewable energy but it takes resources to get this done. Stay focused and continue to stand out. Some people just love to talk and have no action. But you speak, you work hard and things happen. Hard work always pays off!!

      The BVi EV team is amazing!! Keep on keeping on. Dont mind the haters!! They always push you higher.

      Congrats to you Leroy and your entire team and for staying humble. God always rewards a humble spirit openly.
