HELP Jamaica! taking the initiative to go green in a small space

Due to the great success and the high attendance at our educational programs and classes, our Center had a constantly increased demand for electricity in the past. Thanks to the German Embassy in Kingston this will no longer be a problem. The HELP Jamaica! Education Center is happy to announce the completion of its photovoltaic solar system that has been installed on the roof of the building at 5 Cassava Piece Road, Kingston 8.

Through a generous donation by the German Embassy our aspiring young NGO, a collaboration between German and Jamaican partners, received both brand new panels and an electronic system, and is now able to sustain itself with solar energy. The equipment was delivered and installed through RED (Renewable Energy Developers), a Dutch company based in Montego Bay, last weekend and is already in operation.

The green project does not only help to reduce costs on electricity but furthermore promotes the Education Center as a role-model for renewable energy to give the people in the surrounding communities an understanding of photovoltaic power, its ecological benefits and diverse usability.

An official opening ceremony will be held on-site on Thursday, December 13, 2012  having Ministers of Government and the German ambassador, His Excellency Josef Beck inaugurate the solar system and introduce it to media and public.
