Minister Pledges New Nassau Power Plant

The  Government is planning to soon launch a bidding process to construct a “state of the art” power plant for New Providence, which will also include a solar energy component.


Desmond Bannister, minister of works, speaking at a ceremony to mark the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for a clean energy partnership between Bahamas-based Global Energy Solutions and Florida’s Sybac Solar, said that despite the challenges the Bahamas has made inroads in the energy sector.


“Here in the Bahamas we face critical challenges in the energy sector. As an archipelago we must provide energy to numerous islands, all diverse and each in different stages of development. There is no magical formula; no formula that provides an answer to every need,” said Mr Bannister.


“We have the perfect environment to foster small-scale renewable generation in the Family Islands…


“We anticipate that shortly we will build a new state-of-the-art generating plant on this island with best-in-class efficiencies and a single cycle power generation.


“There will be an RFQ with respect to that facility which will require the utilisation of solar energy.”
