42 BUSINESS VIEW CARIBBEAN VOLUME 8, ISSUE 7 Although solar power is a future possibility, Miller explains why they haven’t made that jump just yet. “Every few years we review the solar situation. We are running a 24-hour plant so the required investment in the batteries to run the operation between sundown and sunset far outweighs the benefits at this point. I’m sure within the next decade, you will see us looking at converting some of our facilities to solar as solar technology becomes more affordable.” As National Rums of Jamaica looks to the future, Miller shares the goal and vision of the company. “There is a lot of latent demand on the international market for Jamaican rum, and I see us being a major player in that sphere. We want to be a major player in the growth of Jamaican rum, both as a bulk supplier and as branded rum under the Monymusk brand and our new Long Pond brand. Our vision is to be exporters of quality rum throughout the world.” PREFERRED VENDOR/ PARTNER n Willie’s Trucking Company Limited
