March 2016 – 300-kW solar energy generating system at the rooftop of Rainforest Seafoods Limited’s Freeport, in St James, Jamaica.
The system is installed by Jamaican installation company: Conserve IT and is completely supplied by Solarclarity Caribbean. It consists of Jinko solar panels, Fronius inverters and a K2 mounting system. The Fronius inverters are installaed on the basis of a zero feed-in: all generated electricity will be used. No electricity will be feed back into the grid.
The commissioning of the system at Freeport follows the installation of a 500-kilowatt solar facility at Rainforest Seafoods’ Kingston location last year.
Brain Jardim (CEO of Rainforest Seafoods) says in the ‘Jamaica Observer’:
“The systems are expected to result in greater efficiencies and savings, and increase the company’s production capacity in order to better supply its markets in Jamaica and overseas.”
