A new solar car park project on New Providence is slated to be officially opened on March 18, 2019. The 900-kilowatt solar park will generate enough electricity to power 600 homes, according to the Ministry of the Environment.


“The Ministry of the Environment and Housing is responsible for renewable energy in The Bahamas,” said senior environmental officer with the Ministry of the Environment and Housing Dr Rhianna Neely-Murphy. “This is the largest project that we have been able to get off the ground so far, and it is the first one that we have been able to do through a grant. This is totally grant funded.”

Dr. Neely-Murphy noted that the project, which is cited in the grounds of the Thomas A Robinson National Stadium, was the result of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Governments of the United Arab Emirates and The Bahamas in 2017.
