The twin-island state Antigua and Barbuda has taken a leading role in terms of clean energy supply in the Caribbean. This leadership has now once again been strengthened through the completion of eleven sun2live and sun2roof solar installations on the small private island Jumby Bay in the north of Antigua by the renewable energy provider PV Energy Limited.

The implementation of ground- and roof-mounted solar systems with a total capacity of 404 kWp represents a crucial step towards a sustainable and economic energy supply for the island.

The installation of eleven sun2live and sun2roof solar systems, with an expected annual energy production of 626 MWh, on Jumby Bay island has currently been completed.

As off now, 216.9 kWp of ground-mounted sun2live solutions and 186.82 kWp of sun2roof rooftop installations contribute towards a cleaner power generation on the island, saving 438 tons of CO2 emissions per year. Until today, all the installed systems have already exceeded the expected performance criteria and production benchmarks.

The roof-mounted systems have been installed on different buildings, such as offices, workshops and a desalination plant in the center of the island. PV Energy thereby supports the small island to become independent from expensive and polluting fossil fuels and to benefit from the excellent climatic conditions for generating solar energy.

Whilst PV Energy, within the scope of a 10 MWp clean energy project cluster together with the Government of Antigua and Barbuda (GOAB), implements several small- to large-scale solar installations on the twin-island state, the UK-based clean energy provider also fosters the provision of solar solutions to private customers in order to promote the island's target of becoming one of the most eco-friendly and reliable country in the whole of the Caribbean.
