Prime Minister Andrew Holness believes that Jamaica can potentially host more renewable-energy sources to add up to 50 per cent of electricity to the national grid by 2030, which would also give the country more options for cleaner energy. Holness expressed that view while addressing yesterday’s opening ceremony for the Paradise Park Solar Farm in Savanna-la-Mar, Westmoreland.
Eight Rivers represents a significant development for Jamaica’s energy sector, as at US$8.5 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh), Paradise Park will be the cheapest source of clean energy for Jamaica.
Eight Rivers Energy Company, the entity set to operate the Paradise Park Solar Farm in Westmoreland, says the project is half-complete and due for commissioning by the second quarter of this year.
Jamaica’s Ministry of Science, Energy and Technology (MSET) has announced on its twitter account that works have begun on what will be the country’s largest PV power plant.
