APUA is going green, not with envy or getting sick, APUA has started making steps towards becoming a greener company. This initiative has been aptly named Green Antigua…powered by APUA. The world is changing and it is up to us as global citizens, to ensure that these changes become more positive. APUA would like to begin to positively affect change through this new campaign. The Green Antigua campaign has four sections which specifically target various groups in society.

The school’s program caters to students between the ages of 10-15 years old. Every Friday during the first and second terms a Green Team from APUA comprised of members from the Electricity and Water Business Units and the Corporate Communications Department visit a school. The team engages the students in an interactive power point presentation about the conservation of electricity and water.

The public side of the campaign aims to educate members of the public at large about practical ways to conserve. Currently the public can listen out for conservation tips on the radio and participate in the Save to Win competition. For the Save to Win competition customers must show a decline in consumption for May and Jun, when compared to previous months in order to be eligible to win prizes from Sandals Grande Antigua & Spa, Blue Waters Hotel and Jolly Beach Resort & Spa.
APUA has to lead by example, the internal program seeks to help APUA employees become environmentally conscious. APUA will be rolling out recycling and paper usage reduction programs.
APUA’s Interconnection Policy refers to the technical and practical aspects of connecting a renewable generating source to the utility grid/network. This policy is in its finalization stage and will be rolled out in the near future.
APUA hopes that Green Antigua will begin to build conservation awareness across the nation, one step at a time. Visit the Green Antigua page for more information.
