Wind power to be added to Antigua’s energy mix


Antigua and Barbuda has accessed monies from the Green Climate Fund for wind power.

The financial resources have been earmarked for Antigua and Barbuda to plant windmills and to move towards the production of more energy by non-polluting sources.

Solar energy plants will also be financed by the Fund in due course. It was announced recently that the money has to be spent within a certain timeframe or it may be lost.

The United Nations has begun a plastic-free world campaign, and Antigua and Barbuda has been pivotal in leadership because of the many successes the state has recorded, to include the ban on plastic bags, the ban on Styrofoam food trays and cups, and the increased reliance upon green energy.

The United Nations will stage a concert in Antigua next April 2019 to further the ban on plastics. Thousands are expected to travel to Antigua for the concert and the big names who will give their time and talent to promote a plastic-free world.

  1. This is another move forward by the Government and People of Antigua. Entrepreneural socialism in the tradition of the revolution of ’39 is alive and well. We ARE blessed!

  2. Once upon a time there was around ANTIGUAn former Minister Codrington’ son who had high hopes to work with what ever administration to develop renewable energy.

    What has become if him and his dream? Did he get any support from the government?

    No rocket science in renewable energy all the examples are there to be harness….
