The Hon. Joseph Parry and his Nevis Reformation Party (NRP)-led Administration had been working tirelessly in an effort to get geothermal energy on Nevis.
The Geothermal project on Nevis has received much applause regionally and internationally as the Nevis Island Administration continues with in its endeavor to develop with the natural energy resource.
