New solar plant in St. Lucia will support economic development

Invest Saint Lucia, the island’s investment promotion agency, was pleased to see the inauguration of St. Lucia Electricity Services Limited (LUCELEC) 3-MW solar farm in La Tourney.  This solar park is the first utility-scale renewable energy project operated by LUCELEC. The solar park has 15,000 solar panels and is expected to generate approximately 7 million kWh of electricity per year.

Invest Saint Lucia recognizes the importance of the island’s transition to renewable energy and wants to keep encouraging the progress for a more sustainable development. The organization notes the significance of the project and its location, ideally located for development projects earmarked for nearby.
