40 MW Geothermal Project

40mW project installed in Nevis, which by 2010 will supply 100% of the electricity consumed in St Kitts & Nevis, making it the least fossil fuel dependent country in the world. In the second phase of this project, capacity will be doubled in 2014 to 80 MW so that power can be transmitted using high voltage direct current lines to other islands: initially the Virgin Islands, but there has also been interest from the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. This is the first step in the Caribbean Interconnect project, whereby geothermal?producing islands could export energy to neighbouring countries through undersea cables for only 10?13 US cents per kWh, including the costs of transmission.
