The Gospel Light Elementary School became the first recipient to commission their Solar PV System as part of an EC $2.2 Million grant funded project to equip schools and clinics around the country with Solar PV systems.

The project, Grid Interactive Solar PV Systems for Schools and Clinics in Antigua and Barbuda, or GISS, provides schools and clinics up to $135,000 EC ($50,000 US) in grant funding to purchase, install and operate solar PV systems as well as produce their Environmental Management Systesms (EMS) reports. The project is supported by the Government of Italy, and is being implemented by the Department of Environment.

The GISS will allow schools and clinics to reduce greenhouse gases and other pollutants, and also includes a component to promote knowledge of the environment among schools, teachers, parents, and the local community.
