Aruba Planning Major New Solar Project

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - May 18, 2016

One of the Caribbean’s greenest islands is getting greener.

Aruba is planning a new 7.5-megawatt solar photovoltaic project.

The project will include 2.5 MW installed at schools and public building rooftops, with a 5 MW utility-scale park that will help Aruba toward its goals of going 100 percent green-energy dependent.

The project has already released a tender for the project, which will help lower electricity costs for schools on the island.

It’s being developed by WEB Aruba.
