A solar PV and grid-stabilising energy storage facilities project in Antigua and Barbuda will go forward, led jointly by clean energy provider PV Energy, and state-owned utility APUA, and supported by the Citizenship by Investment Unit. The project will help realise the goal of ensuring environmental sustainability in Antigua and Barbuda.
The Green Antigua and Barbuda project has already successfully installed “numerous well performing solar renewable energy installations” on the islands.
As a next step, PV Energy will manage a 4 MWp solar energy plant in Antigua, saving more than 3000 tons of CO2 emissions per year. The agreement will also allow for the installation of a 6.5 MWh grid stabilising battery storage system, the final phase of the project.
