Solar Energy is a Success in Barbados, Should Haiti Copy Success?

My brother visited Barbados recently and told me almost every house in the island has solar panels on top of it... Bus stations, hospitals, government buildings have solar photovoltaic systems installed.The sun shines in Haiti everyday, yet, everyday we are in the dark.

Solar Energy in Barbados

Back in 2014, there was an article on the Huffington Post saying that tiny Barbados was beating the United States on the road to green energy.

A recent article from a Barbados newspaper mentioned that by the end of this year more public buildings around the island will be outfitted with solar photovoltaic systems.

In Haiti, EDH, the National electric company is a mess but Haiti is very rich in sunshine. Wouldn't it be nice if Haitians were encouraged us that sunshine (Solèy la) to light up the country...

Wait... That's one of the things in President Jovenel agenda right?

What do you think about that?
