sun2roof solar installations on public rooftops to foster Antigua’s green energy future
Halftime for Antigua and Barbuda's solar rooftop projects: Nearly 50 % of the agreed 2 MWp solar rooftop systems are installed. The 2 MWp sun2roof are part of a 10 MWp clean energy cluster conducted and realised by the government of the Caribbean twin-island state and the UK-based renewable energy provider PV Energy Limited. The equipment of government-owned buildings such as schools thereby represents a fundamental part of reducing the twin-island's dependency on fossil fuels and spurring the development of a green economy.
The 10 MWp clean energy cluster moreover comprises the implementation of three large-scale solar installations with a total capacity of 8 MW. Whereas the sun2live solar power plant at the V.C. Bird International Airport Antigua was already commissioned in December 2015, the construction of the next megawatt-scale project has started in the Bethesda area. PV Energy will implement a 4 MWp utility there, contributing to the island's sustainable development. Currently, the fence around the area has been constructed and the next steps of the power plant's installation are under preparation. The 8 MWp ground-mounted solar part of the overall ag reement will be concluded by another 1 MWp to be installed on Barbuda which is in the process of being commenced after parts of the equipment have been shipped to the island already.
The different solar projects realised and planned in the Caribbean state Antigua and Barbuda prove the deep commitment of its government but also its companies and citizens to harness the extremely good climatic conditions in order to switch from polluting fossil fuels towards a clean and renewable energy supply.
