Solar on the Red House?
Is Trinidad’s minister of the environment trying to one up PresidentObama? On Tuesday, Minister Roodal Moonilal announced that he willexplore the use of solar power on government buildings. Trinidad is asmall, developing island nation whose GDP is less than half of onepercent that of the U.S. Trinidad is rich in oil and natural gas, butthat isn’t dampening Moonilal’s commitment to alternative energy andconservation which, he says, should be “the concern of every man.”
Trinidad’s parliament meets in a palatial building known as the RedHouse (pictured above). I’m not part of Sungevity’s remote solar design team, but it looks to me like a few dozen solar panels would fit nicely on the sunny roof. (Unfortunately, Trinidad is a little too faroutside our service area to offer a free system as we did for Obama). If Trinidad’s government can pay for solar power, surely ourswill accept our offer for free solar power. So which building will bethe first to host a solar PV array–the Red House or the White House?
