Jumby Bay island to benefit from additional clean energy supply


The small private island Jumby Bay, located in the north of Antigua, will soon reach almost complete autarky in terms of power supply. After the installation of eleven sun2live and sun2roof solar installations with a total capacity of 404 kWp last year, the clean energy provider PV Energy now expands this solar energy project and is about to implement a sun2safe xl managed micro grid. Upon completion of this installation, the whole area will nearly exclusively be supplied with reliable and carbon-free quality energy, which makes the island a model example for sustainability. 

A part of the energy supply of the private island, hosting a five-star resort, hotel and private residences, is already covered by PV Energy’s ground-mounted sun2live and sun2roof rooftop solar systems installed on different buildings, such as offices and workshops. Through the additional installation of 804 kW of sun2live solar, and a sun2safe xl energy management unit comprising 560 kWh battery storage and 2.2 MW grid fo rming inverter capacity, Jumby Bay can enhance its own micro grid and become increasingly independent from polluting fossil fuels.

Through the combination of top-tier solar installations, powerful sun2safe energy management with batteries and a grid forming inverter, a stable local grid will be established and a high-quality current in terms of voltage stability and frequency ensures the independence from other energy sources.

14 individual solar solutions on small to medium-sized areas and roofs will work as one interconnected and interacting system. Moreover, the fall-back diesel generators will not be online or in idle operation most of the time, since in case of an urgent and high power need the high-performance sun2safe xl managed battery system will ensure the power supply until the generator has started up to support the solar installation and thereby supply sufficient energy to the operations on the island.
