Jamaica: ESA unveils plans to work on 24 MW solar project

Set to be located in Paradise Park on the south coast of Jamaica, the project is currently in the planning stages. ESA has said it is looking to design, construct and commission the plant, and provide monitoring, and operations and maintenance services. The company adds that it will also help to obtain the relevant permits and meet other legal requirements. Meanwhile, Caribbean Energies Group LLC, a U.S.-based OEM, will reportedly provide the financing, array site and necessary materials.

If all goes to plan, the two parties will begin construction this year. It is thought that the plant will be built across 100 acres in the west end of the island, located in the park.

ESA owns and operates a photvoltaic portfolio containing over 500 power generating facilities in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Spain and Italy.
