Saint Kitts, Nevis Island Committed To Renewable Energy

 

Saint Kitts and Nevis is committed to the development of renewable energy due to the constant high cost of oil imported in the generation of electricity, Prime Minister Denzil Douglas said.

 

During a weekly radio program, he recognized that it was unsustainable the dependence of importation from oil derivate products.

 

Last week Douglas, along with the Energy Minister, Earl Asim Martin held a discussion related to the initiative of the Climate Change global programme to work for the reduction of cost of electricity and energy in the east of the island.

 

The Prime Minister clarified that to gain progress in the initiative a group of experts will review the perspectives of wind energy in the country, besides moving forward in the project of geothermal energy in the island.

 

With the implementation of strategies for the use of green energy, which is cheaper, the cost will be more sustainable and this will have a positive impact in consumers, said Douglas.

 

He emphasized that these new plans will help this territory to move away from fossil fuel and gain projects of renewable energy in schools and hospitals.

 

He assured that green energy is the Caribbean islands destination and called the countries of the area to step up the use of renewable sources of electricity.
