Over $800,000 in seven months

Herbert Morrison Technical High School Community is now enjoying a fully operational 3,000 watt grid-tied solar photovoltaic (PV) system which was installed at the institution through partial funding earned by students who placed second in the 16 to 19 age category of the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica's (PCJ) Schools Energy Programme Science Competition in 2016.

The team of Maryck Brown, Alex Lake, Samuel Smith and Shaquille Thomas entered the competition with a model which depicted how renewable energy could be utilised to supply electricity to a building at their school which is located in Montego Bay. The students, who were awarded $40,000 each in prize money, also earned a $500,000 grant from the PCJ to implement a renewable energy project at their school.
