Jamaica Solar

Jamaica Adds 24 Megawatts of Solar

All that Caribbean sun is now going to be used for something other than getting a great tan.

ESA Renewables recently signed a letter of intent to design and construct a 24 MW solar project in Paradise Park, Jamaica.

Working in conjunction with the Caribbean Energies Group (CEG) and a US Solar OEM, ESA will design, construct, commission, monitor and provide operations and maintenance for the 24 MW DC project. The Caribbean Energies Group LLC will be obtaining the financing, the array site and all necessary materials to complete the project.

The solar park will be built on nearly 100 acres on the western side of Jamaica in an area called Paradise Park. The park will produce 33 million kWh annually while also saving over 17 million kg of CO2 every year.

While the specifics are still being ironed out, the construction of the project is set to begin some time this year.
