FortisTCI and the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Residences are working together to increase renewable energy integration in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The luxury-branded development has signed on as FortisTCI’s 10th Utility Owned Renewable Energy Program (UORE) customer, further diversifying the country’s energy profile.
The Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Residences are currently under construction on Grace Bay Beach, Providenciales, and are expected to open in 2021.
A 210.6 kW rooftop solar PV system will be installed on the resort’s casino and restaurant rooftop. It will be a grid-tied installation, generating approximately 310MWh annually and help avoid approximately 244 tons of CO2 emissions.
