Yes, We Have Harnessed The Wind
Wind energy provides a clean, sustainable solution to global energy problems. It can be used as an alternative to fossil fuels in generating electricity, without the emission of greenhouse gases. It is inexhaustible and renewable. It is envisaged that wind power will make the most significant contribution to the attainment of international targets for green electricity.
A 2.2 MW Wind Farm has been constructed at Maddens Estate on Nevis and is currently supplying wind energy to the electricity grid. The Nevis Electricity Company Limited (Nevlec) is obligated to purchase up to 1.6 MW of energy from WindWatt (Developer) according to the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) between the two companies. The PPA was signed on 14th July 2009 between Nevlec and WindWatt, the developers and owners of the Wind Farm. The Wind Resource contract between WindWatt and the Nevis Island Administration was signed on 14 July 2009. The Wind Farm consists of eight (8) 275 KW wind turbines. The Wind Farm is located on government leased land on Maddens Estate.
