Keegan's travels have taken him from Panama City to Managua with many stops along the way over the past six months. Across Central America Keegan has been targeting the region's top energy consumers, and in a part of the world where the back bone of industry is comprised of commercial manufacturing, mining and lumber milling, he opines it is agreed by the all that the time has come to invest in a green future.
"We have been impressed with the enthusiasm for solar across the region," says Keegan. "As the price of oil and therefore the cost of doing business rises, one of the most effective and best solutions to stay competitive in the long-term is to go green now. Minimizing energy costs and reducing dependency on costly foreign imports rank high on the wish lists of both business men and government officials alike."
