On Friday (January 13th), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) hosted the formal handover of the Main Ridge Visitor Centre solar installation to the THA at the Main Ridge Centre, Bloody Bay.
In 2020, the Global Climate Change Alliance Plus (GCCA+) Community Solar Project, funded by the Europen Union (EU) and implemented by the UNDP, issued an open call for sites at which small-scale, roof-mounted, solar photovoltaic installations could be done.
The installations formed part of the agenda to progress renewable energy deliverables towards achieving the National Determined Contributions of Trinidad and Tobago to the Paris Agreement.
The installation at the Centre promotes sustainable energy with reduced carbon emissions and the use of renewable power generation. The event was attended by Chief Secretary Hon. Farley Augustine and Secretary for Food Security, Natural Resources, the Environment and Sustainable Development Assemblyman Nathisha Charles-Pantin.
