Japan Funds Solar Energy Project For Schools in Barbados

 

Japan’s Ambassador to Barbados, Yoshimasa Tezuka, said the project would “allow students to see the value of renewable energy as a basic human need.”

 

“Efforts to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels is [an initiative] that government is seriously pursuing and we feel the best way to do that is to lead by example,” Barbados Foreign Minister Maxine McClean following a meeting with Tezuka. “We certainly appreciate the initiative to assist us in that direction.”

 

Barbados has been making a push on green energy in recent years, highlighted by the construction of a waste-to-energy plant at the Mangrove Pond Landfill.

 

Japan and Barbados have had diplomatic relations since August 1967.
