In St. Kitts and Nevis, participants from both the private and public sectors are getting the opportunity to learn more about the installation, operation, maintenance and troubleshooting of solar power systems:
Participants are currently involved in a week-long workshop, at the UWI center, that was initiated by Green Solutions International SKN and certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP).
Chief Executive Officer of the Green Solutions International SKN Dr. Wayne Archibald says he is very pleased with the interest generated in the workshop and noted that it is an indication of the positive direction that the country is moving to in terms of renewable energy.
“We are very pleased to have the kind of turnout to the NABCEP solar class, we have at least 40 participants from St Kitts and Nevis, we have people from government, from the utility (company), from the private sector and people who are doing their own business attending the course. It’s a success so far at least with regard to the turnout and we’re pretty sure that the class will inspire and motivate people to want to pursue a career or even help us get the right policies in place to incentivize people to pursue solar.”
