Government of twin island state has officially inaugurated 3 MWp solar power plant at V.C. Bird International Airport Antigua

Antigua and Barbuda’s electricity sector has just got much closer to becoming the greenest in the  whole of the  Cari bbean. The  national  target to  generate  20   per   cent of the required electricity  from  solar  energy is  almost tangible. Yesterday, the Government of Antigua and Barbuda together with the UK-based clean energy provider PV Energy Limited and The meeco Group has officially inaugurated the 3 MWp solar power plant at the V.C . Bird International Airport of Antigua.

The Honourable  Gaston Browne Prime Minister and Minister of Fi nance and Corporate Governance stated in his speech:  “This important initiative in the energy sector, utilizing state-of-the-art technologies, will allow us to reduce our foreign exchange outlays for imported fossil fuel, while developing our indigenous energy resources and contributing towards our goal of reducing our carbon footprint. The realization of the 10 MWp project means that our Manifesto pledge to achieve 20 per cent of our electricity from renewable energy is on target, and we are in fact likely to exceed that target making Antigua and Barbuda’s electricity sector possibly the greenest in the Caribbean.”

The sun2live solar plant  installation  at the V.C. Bird International Airport Antigua, developed and constructed by PV Energy Limited, plays a pivotal role  in  the  clean energy strategy  for  Antigua and Barbuda. More than 12,000 top-tier polycrystalline photovoltaic panels generate up to 4.645 MWh per year and therefor e save   a substantial 3.019,50 tons of CO 2  emissions  during the same period  and thus contribute  to  the goal of reducing the carbon footprint of the twin island state.

To supply airports with eco-friendly and clean solar pow er is a n   approach, which  requires  diligent  and farsighted analysis  and preparations PV  Energy Limited has carried out  special gla re studies ,  in order  to avoid any glare hazard  issues  for pilot s  to  ensure the safety  regulations of the airport.  Since airplanes and aerodromes are very sensitive to glare and any reflected sunlight from the solar panels ,  the ideal dire ction of the photovol taic modules had to be defined ; therefore,  the  layout of the  solar power plant  was  adapted accordingly.

The Honourable Mr. Asot Michael, 
Minister of Tourism, Economic Development, Investment and Energy stated during his speech:  “As w e celebrate 34 years of independence, this successful harnessing of our indigenous resources for our national development takes us one step further along the path of sovereignty for which VC Bird, the Father of the nation, and other pioneers strived and fought.”
