Ambassador Miguel Tsao made known his views when he spoke at a recent official groundbreaking for a five-acre Solar Farm to be stationed at the Robert Bradshaw International Airport.
He said the launch of the project represents a significant moment for St. Kitts and Nevis as it demonstrates the country’s willingness to develop renewable energy
He also had high praises for the country’s Prime Minister, Dr. Denzil Douglas, stating that without the hard work and dedication, determination and guidance of Head of Government and officials in the Ministry of Energy, St. Christopher Air and Sea Port Authority (SCASPA), St. Kitts Electricity Company (SKELEC) and Speedtech, the one mega-watt farm would not have been a reality.
Ambassador Tsao stated that this project combines renewable energy with tourism. He said the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis and the Republic of China (Taiwan) share the commitment, responsibility and budget.
“We are all keenly aware that renewable energy is globally a trend setter, where all countries around the world are facing the trend challenge of carbon emission and the climate change.” Resident Ambassador, His Excellency Miguel Tsao said. “This gives us the opportunity to capitalize on renewable energy.”
Lucas Chiu, General Manager of Speedtech Energy Co. Ltd in Taiwan, expressed gratitude to the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis and the Republic of China (Taiwan) for allowing his company the opportunity to construct the facility.
“Speedtech Energy was honored to attend the bid and won it for the one million megawatt Solar Power Farm Project,” General Manager Chiu stated. “Regarding this one megawatt solar project, we offer 25 years warranty of our Solar Panel.”
Lucas stressed that his company will follow through with this plan to execute the project very seriously and carefully in order to see it completed.
