Guadeloupe: New Solar Energy Installation in Le Moule

Guadeloupe Attitude posts [Fr] a picture of a solar installation in the town of Le Moule that should help lower carbon dioxyde emission into the island's environment. The blogger explains that the installation was inaugurated March 30th and joins a wider project encompassing 2000 square meters of solar panels in the town. The solar energy project delivers electricity to 6 schools, the local library and three municipal buildings.

    Are there finally incentives/programs in Guadeloupe or other Caribbean countries that people can take advantage of in order to have renewable energy?

  • stephens, the Dominican Republic recently adopted a renewables incentives law. Barbados proposed some tax breaks for solar and wind in its energy plan, and I believe (but would have to check and confirm) that Jamaica has some modest incentives. Hope this helps.

  • Caribbean Solar Alliance http://www.caribsolaralliance.com will be unveiling a new, informational membership site in 30 days! All the info. you need about solar in the Caribbean will be found here.
