A 3MW solar power project has been completed at Antigua’s VC Bird International airport as a portion of a wider 10MW project for the island.
Developed by the government of Antigua and Barbuda with assistance from British developer PV Energy Ltd, the installation will generate around 4.645MWh of power per year, with PV Energy set to also develop the remaining 7MWp of capacity.
The project, located over 3.9 hectares of land, utilises more than 12,000 polycrystalline PV modules from an unnamed supplier. According to Meeco Group, the project will produce almost enough power to meet electricity consumption at the entire airport.
