The project sets a strong precedent for using renewable energy to drive down energy costs on its outer islands. Under construction on Union Island, the 600kW solar PV plant is connected to a 637 kilowatt-hour (kWh) lithium-ion battery, extending its generating capacity to supply 100 per cent of Union Island’s daytime power requirements. Union Island’s energy costs are currently almost 50 per cent higher than those of the main island of Saint Vincent.
