The Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium 925kW Solar PV Carport Power Plant will displace 310,000 litres of diesel per year, saving the government US$350,000 and offsetting 856 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually.
The plant also serves as a carport with 342 parking spaces, including two spaces that are equipped with fast-charging electric vehicle charging stations. As the country’s first and largest solar energy project, it sets a regulatory precedent for new renewable energy plants to feed into the grid.
The project was developed in partnership with the Bahamas Ministry of Environment and Housing, with initial concept work by the Rocky Mountain Institute.
