Global Energy Services (GES), a Spain-based developer of renewable energy projects, has announced today the completion of a 28 MW large-scale solar PV plant in Jamaica.
The ground-mounted solar farm is the first utility-scale PV installation on the Caribbean island, and marks both an important milestone for the country’s fledgling renewable energy industry and GES’ own diversifying portfolio.
Having connected the solar farm to the grid, GES now has 150 MW of constructed solar projects under its belts, which serves to augment its wind power projects – a sector in which the firm first entered renewable energy.
“The execution of a project in a country where the renewable energy activity is just starting is always a challenge,” said GES COO Luis Ares. “But thanks to our experience we have required flexibility and can deliver the same high standards all over the world.”
At 28 MW, this solar plant is the largest in Jamaica – but that record will tumble next year with the completion of a 33.1 MW solar PV project planned for the island’s Westmoreland Parish by renewable energy developer Eight Rivers Energy Company and partner, Neoen.
