Four thousand dollars’ worth of diesel will be saved annually as a result of the Solar Energy Plant at the Argyle International Airport which became operational on June 15th.

Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves said the project was carried out with a soft loan funding from the CARICOM Development Fund at a cost of EC$2 Million.

He told Reporters on Monday that the project will provide sufficient energy to power 480 homes on a daily basis.
