The switch to solar in the Caymans
The Cayman Islands is investing more in sources of renewable energy to reduce dependency on polluting and expensive imported fossil fuels. With an abundance of brilliant sunshine and constant Caribbean breezes, the switch to clean or renewable energy sources would seem an obvious move.
Every year, the Cayman Islands continues to make improvements to its solar energy industry. It is harnessing the power of the sun to produce two forms of power: solar photovoltaic (PV), which converts sunlight into electricity and solar thermal which heats water.
Renewable energy systems can be installed in existing homes, both new builds and older properties. Renewable energy equipment such as solar panels are duty-free for residential homeowners.
