Basseterre, St. Kitts, August 13, 2019 (CARIBBEANTIMES)

The largest solar generation plus energy storage project ever to be built in the Caribbean has been announced by the government of St Kitts and Nevis, the state-owned St Kitts Electric Company (SKELEC) and Swiss energy storage firm Leclanché.The fully-integrated system will comprise a 35.6 MW solar PV plant and a 44.2 MWh lithium‐ion battery energy storage system and will provide between 25-30 per cent of the nation’s current power generation.

SKELEC and Leclanché SA have entered into a 20-year power purchase agreement to ensure the residents of the Caribbean twin-island federation are provided with a reliable clean energy, coupled with fixed cost savings compared to the current diesel-generated power system. These savings will result in the project.
