The Dominican Republic and five other Caribbean countries will benefit from technical assistance grants from the United States under the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas (ECPA).
According to press reports, the grant to the Dominican Republic will be used to install a demonstration PV solar system in parallel with the utility grid to supply a portion of the nation’s electricity demand.
The other countries to benefit from these grants are Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica and St Vincent and the Grenadines. The announcement was made by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during a recent trip to Jamaica for a meeting with Caricom foreign ministers.
