Two New Solar Farms Planned for St Kitts-Nevis

St Kitts and Nevis will build two new solar farms, according to Cartwright Farrell, CEO of the St Kitts Electricity Corporation (SKELEC).


The projects leverages the success of the country’s existing solar farm located at Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport. The airport solar farm was a joint venture between the  St. Christopher Air and Sea Ports Authority (SCASPA) and the governments of St Kitts and Nevis and Taiwan who donated $1 million. The 750 kilowatt solar farm was built by Speedtech Energy Company Ltd and currently provides about 3000 KWh per day.


The two countries are now planning two additional solar farms which are expected to produce 500 kilowatts and 1 MW of energy, respectively.


Mr. Farrell said, “that will save over 40,000 gallons of diesel per year over the lifetime of the project and save SKELEC over EC$8 million in diesel savings”.
