Jamaica takes a closer look at pumped hydro

Jamaica has started studying the potential for pumped hydro storage on its electric grid to supply the grid with energy in times of need, as announced by Prime Minister Holness. 

The project envisions pulling water from the Middlesex aquifer in St Ann parish and pumping the water to reservoirs at higher elevations. The water would then be gravity fed to the south coast through power turbines which would generate up to 200MWh.
