Bill Clinton inaugurates a photovoltaic plant constructed by Grupotec in Santa Lucía
St. Lucia Electricity Services Limited (LUCELEC) celebrated the inauguration ceremony of their first large scale photovoltaic plant in their country.
Grupotec successfully constructed the installation during the first half of 2018. The photovoltaic plant of 4MW is situated close to Hewanorra International Airport. It supplies approximately 5% of the necessary electricity for the almost 200.000 inhabitants of the island in the Caribbean Sea, meaning they will be able to significantly reduce their dependence on fossil fuels.
Grupotec was invited to the ceremony, in which local authorities and the ex-president of the United States Bill Clinton partook. Clinton represented the foundation as it has his name and demonstrates his dedication in combating climate change
