Being in a perfect location for solar power, Richmond Vale Academy will in 2015 bring more Solar Power initiatives to St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

After two years of investigations and application we have found financing for a new 17Kw Solar panel system. The panels are on their way from China and the system will be up and running by the end of 2015.

The Climate Compliance Conference aims at reaching out to our communities as an example of how to create a self-sustainable energy supply.
Later on the aim is to assist different groups and communities in developing their own energy security.

Apart from being an example to people in St. Vincent, the solar panels will also provide our school center with cheap and clean energy.

Our monthly energy consumption is 2,190 KwH. The KwH rate is in 0.44 (USD), which makes the monthly electricity bill $963.60(USD). The Solar Power system will cover all our energy consumption.

Being a boarding school accommodating up to 75 students and staff, the amount of energy that we are using is vast. The new solar panels will help us save money on energy and this money can be used to invest in other Climate Compliance Actions.
