Jamaica’s Latest Green Push

Jamaica has quietly headed toward the forefront of the Caribbean’s green energy industry.

The latest step is the new $89 million, 36.3-megawatt wind farm project in St Elizabeth..

Jamaica is “ripe for foreign investment,” said the country’s Minister of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Phillip Paulwell.

“‎This is very good for Jamaica,” Paulwell said. “It is always a good thing when a foreign company can come to Jamaica and be this receptive … can be this community oriented … and can make such a huge difference in people’s lives.”

Paulwell said the project is part of a government drive to reduce reliance on imported fuel.

“Jamaicans can today celebrate the fact that the price of oil is the lowest it has been in 10 years,” he said.
