Grid-Connected Solar Installation on Turks and Caicos

Urban Green Energy (UGE), a specialist in distributed renewable energy, announced today that it has completed the first commercial-scale solar energy project on the Turks and Caicos Islands, in partnership with local company Urban Green Environmental.


The 35.25-kilowatt solar photovoltaic system, installed on the roof of Fortis TCI’s headquarters in Providenciales, will serve as a pilot project for the island territory.


Fortis TCI, the project’s owner, selected UGE and Urban Green Environmental to design, install, and implement the completely customized photovoltaic system, which consists of 141 monocrystalline solar panels. In addition to managing the project from start to finish, the two companies also trained Fortis TCI staff, who will continue to gain practical experience in the operation and maintenance of solar systems as part of the pilot phase.


Urban Green Environmental is part of UGE’s international Partner Network, currently operating in nearly 90 countries around the world. Partners like Urban Green Environmental work with UGE to remove barriers to international adoption of renewable energy, with a focus on modular systems that are adapted to fit each customer’s specific site and energy needs. UGE also provides distributed renewable energy system design, technical and sales training, site analysis tools, and financing capabilities for international partners.


The FortisTCI solar energy pilot project is expected to last between one and two years. The electricity company also plans to begin a wind-power pilot project, which will commence once the company receives final planning approval, according to its press release.
