By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Fifty houses in the villages of Indian Creek, Golden Stream, and Medina Bank in the Toledo District are to get electricity through the United Nations Development Programme’s EnGenDER: “Enabling Gender-Responsive Disaster Recovery, Climate and Environmental Resilience in the Caribbean.”

Today the Ministry of Public Utilities, Energy, and Logistics signed a memorandum of understanding with the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Climate Change, and Disaster Risk Management for a grant of US$50,000 from the United Nations Development Programme said a press release from the Government of Belize Press Office.

A press release issued by the Belize Press Office today notes that the funds are to be used to supply electricity connections to 50 households in the villages of Indian Creek, Golden Stream, and Medina Bank in the Toledo District. The electricity will be generated through an off-grid micro-hybrid solar photovoltaic system.

This project is part of the Energy Access Project that the Ministry of Public Utilities is conducting in partnership with the Caribbean Renewable Energy Fund (CREF) from Abu Dhabi and Belize Electricity Limited. This project is aimed at providing electricity to villages that do not have access to modern energy carriers.

Minister of Public Utilities, Energy and Logistics Rodwell Ferguson thanked Orlando Habet, Minister of Sustainable Development, Climate Change, and Disaster Risk Management, and Kenrick Williams, CEO in the ministry, for this endowment.

Oscar Requena, Minister of Rural Transformation, Community Development, Labour, and Local Government said energy access is a key driver in reducing poverty and supporting sustainable and rural development.
