Overview

 

If there is one place in this world where alternative energy should be a priority, it definitely is the Caribbean Region where energy typically costs between $0.25US and $0.48US per kWh, among the highest in the world.

In the Caribbean, the trade winds and abundant sunshine provide ideal conditions for clean energy. In many regions of the world alternative energy needs subsidizing to be economically feasible, however, in the Caribbean it is, in many cases, more economical than burning diesel.

Nevertheless, the use of clean energy is far behind because of insufficient knowledge and lack of local legislation and financing.
