  1. A slew of nice words strung together = wind energy!
    I was looking forward to learning what type of “energy services” would be used to the public’s advantage.
    This press release is a disappoint, and really does not say anything – to boost my confidence in the electric company.

  2. Lucelec is playing chess with the energy sector by strategically positioning themselves to the upcoming changes in the sector.
