St. Kitts Debuts Solar Energy Farm

St. Kitts

The St. Kitts Ministry of Tourism recently announced the opening of a 1.0 megawatt solar powered energy grid created to power the St. Christopher Air, Sea and Ports Authority (SCASPA). Located at Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport, approximately 3,500 photovoltaic panels now generate more than ample electricity for SCASPA operations with excess energy to be fed into the island’s public electrical grid.

"As our air and sea ports are the only means by which visitors can enter St. Kitts, it is imperative that they are powered by a reliable and affordable source that is also in keeping with our overarching commitment to the preservation of our natural island environment," said Senator Ricky Skerritt, Minister of Tourism & International Transport. The US$2.5 million solar farm is expected to save SCASPA more than EC$1 Million in electricity costs annually and is expected to pay for itself in approximately five years.
