Trinidad & Tobago installs solar lighting at community centres


The inaugural installation of Solar Lighting at Community Centres will take place at the Malabar Phase IV Community Centre, Holly Betaudier Drive, Malabar, Arima, on Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at 5 pm, a release from Trinidad and Tobago’s energy ministry said today.


This installation is one of 11 such facilities now completed, which have been funded by the Ministry of Energy Affairs (MEEA), and supported by the National Energy Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago (NEC) at a cost still to be disclosed. The cost is expected to be in one of the speeches on Wednesday. Speaking will be Energy Minister Kevin Ramnarine who “will officially commission the facility after a short opening ceremony,” according to the release. Ganga Singh, minister of the environment and water resources, and Anil Roberts, minister of sports and member of Parliament for the area are also expected to speak. Chairmen of the MEEA’s state boards will attend.


The ministry statement said: “The project involved the installation of external security lighting which are totally powered by solar photo-voltaic panels which generate electricity from sunlight falling on them. Thus, the lights are fully powered by renewable energy at no cost to the community centre.”
