Too young to solar
The T&T Electricity Act is unsurprisingly outdated and was written nine years before the first solar cell was invented at Bell Laboratories.

The Act does not recognise that energy can be generated (from solar and other renewable energy sources) in smaller quantities in a distributed manner (in homes and businesses) and that this energy can be consumed at the source of generation. The outdated Electricity Act is the main source of all regulatory challenges.

Man dies 13 days after being beaten, doused with gas
A police report stated that shortly before midnight on November 12 while at Boissiere Trace in Gran Couva, Kowlessar and the suspect, who is a cousin, had an argument which escalated into a fight.
