How can I take advantage of the sun's energy in my home and/or business? Solar energy can be harnessed in different ways:
- Photovoltaic Energy: is the generation of electrical energy through photovoltaic solar panels.
- Solar-Thermal Energy: is the heating of water, or other fluids, by means of panels that help to transfer heat.
Both technologies can be widely used in Barbados and will help you lower your electricity costs.
- An integral component in achieving the policy objectives is the provision of concessions aimed at stimulating, in particular, private sector investment in the energy sector. Such concessions have been extended in a number of Financial and Budgetary statements made by the Minister of Finance, which were subsequently implemented under relevant legislation.
