Solar Dynamics acknowledges the passing of Canon Andrew Hatch, and offers its condolences to his wife Sheila, his children Rachel and Marcus and their families; as well as to his sister Diana, her children Jane, Michael and Roger and brother Michael, and his wife Nan, Paul and Guy, nephew Stephen, son of his late brother Robin and their families. We feel the pain and loss of his passing.

Canon Andrew was for many years our Chairman and mentor. The concept of using solar energy as an appropriate technology for hot water was his brainchild in 1973 when the Oil crisis first began and he took the idea to CADEC, Christian Action For Development of the Caribbean, a division of the Caribbean Conference of Churches.

Andrew embraced the earlier work of Professor Tom Lawand of McGill University and made a solar water heating system using the basic materials recommended by Lawand for his home.

His wife Sheila gave the company its name - Solar Dynamics - and provided financial support during its challenging infancy. While the commercial development of the industry was championed by James Husbands, the idea of establishing a solar water heating facility or industry was the brainchild of Andrew Hatch.

The company started outside of The St Mary’s Home, in a shed donated by the late Bill Frost, a neighbour of Andrew.

Andrew supported the expansion of the industry in the Eastern Caribbean when Solar Dynamics in 1993 entered the Saint Lucia market as a manufacturer in the OECS.

Canon Hatch was a believer in employee share-ownership and supported employee participation. Canon Andrew Hatch also championed the re-development of the pottery industry, and especially the Chalky Mount facility.

Canon Andrew Hatch was awarded The Silver Crown of Merit in 2007 for his contribution to the Solar Water Heating Industry.

We pray that Canon Andrew Hatch will rest in peace and rise in glory.
