Grenada celebrates CARICOM Energy Month 2017

ST. GEORGE’S GRENADA, November 13, 2017 – Energy Month is an annual CARICOM initiative in which member states are invited to raise awareness and educate the public and the business community on sustainable production of electricity. The Month also seeks to encourage behavioural changes in homes and workplaces to conserve and reduce energy consumption through the use of renewable energies and energy efficient appliances and fittings.

For the year 2017, CARICOM Energy Month will be held across the Region under the theme “REthinking Energy”. This theme encourages us to examine the role of renewable energy in our sustainable energy transition and also to focus on the importance of the efficient use of energy.

The main activity organized by the Energy Division to celebrate the 2017 Energy Month, is a Kill-A-Watt Exhibition. This event is scheduled for Friday 24th November 2017 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on the Carenage in front of the Financial Complex.

This exhibition will feature exhibitors of renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions, as well as energy suppliers and will be an opportunity for networking among the key stakeholders and the sharing of information on how to “REthink Energy” in Grenada.

The Government also promotes the use of renewable energies by offering duty and tax exemptions for renewable energy systems. Furthermore the Grenada Development Bank offers lower interest rate loans for renewable energy applications.
