WRB Energy’s Content Solar in Jamaica: Resiliency by Design

In 2017, catastrophic weather events, including Hurricanes Irma and Maria, devastated electric systems throughout the U.S. Puerto Rico, and the Caribbean. In Jamaica, unprecedented torrential rainfall, massive flooding, and landslides battered Jamaica’ s Montego Bay area, severely impacting 10 of the country’s 14 parishes, with Clarendon hit the worst. Clarendon is the site of Content Solar, Jamaica’s first utility-scale solar PV plant. However, the renewable energy site, developed by renewable energy veteran WRB Energy, was unaffected by the severe weather conditions that inundated the greater May Pen area with 17 feet of flood water and severely damaged bridges, roads and communities over a four-day period in May 2017.

Government’s recent press release on Grenlec’s GCPI funding is misleading and inaccurate.

The Government of Grenada’s press release last week incorrectly states that the Grenlec Community Partnership Initiative (GCPI) has been funded as a direct “pass through” charge to Grenadian consumers. This is totally false. To set the record straight: the GCPI has not, and has never been, funded by Grenadian consumers through electricity rates. In fact, the GCPI has been solely funded by Grenlec shareholders who annually contributed more than 5% of the Company’s pre-tax profits to charitable community organizations. If the Company had not donated this money, it would have made no difference whatsoever to electricity rates. READ MORE
