What are the solar energy possibilities in Grand Cayman?
A Department of Environment survey indicated there are around 1,500 acres of undeveloped land across Grand Cayman that are not considered environmentally sensitive. We consider this sufficient space for solar farms to meet 100% of Grand Cayman’s existing energy requirements.
A mix of rooftop and utility scale solar will help provide consistent, reliable and affordable energy.
“CUC remains committed to promoting and developing renewable energy as a source of electricity generation and we believe that programmes such as CORE (Customer Owned Renewable Energy) and DER (Distributed Energy Resources) play an important role along with utility scale projects.”
