Agencies Partner For Installation Of Solar Lighting At Entrance To Airport

ST. JOHN’S, Antigua (GIS) — A joint effort by a number of government agencies has seen the installation of solar lights along the entrance to the VC Bird International Airport. In particular the Antigua and Barbuda Airport Authority (ABAA), the Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA), and the Public Works Department have worked together to enable the installation of fourteen solar powered lights along the driveway into the airport entrance. The new lights are intended to serve as a practical demonstration of the use of the nation’s renewable energy resources and are a part of the government’s efforts to promote development of the nation’s renewable energy resources. The solar powered lights will provide much needed lighting along the driveway which had been negatively impacted by the absence of lights following the closure of the Stanford Groups properties in the area. Director of Operations at the Antigua and Barbuda Airport Authority, Mr Edward Gilkes, thanked the various departments which had made the solar lighting possible and noted that “the lights have brought much relief to the many persons that utilize the airport at evenings and early mornings”. Other government agencies involved in the installation of the lights were the Office of the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Legal Affairs.
