Energy-Efficiency Program to Benefit Jamaican Schools

Kingston, Feb 14 (Prensa Latina) A total of 15 public schools in Jamaica will be benefited with a new energy-efficiency program, the minister of Science, Energy and Technology, Andrew Wheatley announced today. Those educational centers will receive a 10-kilowatt photovoltaic system that will reduce carbon-dioxide emissions to the atmosphere, among other environmental benefits, according to the source. The power generating station will have 42 solar panels, connected to the local power supply and a data recorder that will allow monitoring its performance through the Web, executive Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica Peter Ruddock pointed out. The savings from the electricity bill, which have been estimated at around half a million USD at every center, will be devoted to buy modern information technology means and other school needs, said Lincoln McIntyre, director of the school where the program will be first implemented.
