The Jamaica Mission of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has awarded US$4 million to an alliance of Jamaican and international private sector and non-profit organizations for a 3-year initiative to accelerate the adoption of distributed solar energy to increase energy resilience in Jamaica. Led by the Cadmus Group, the alliance includes solar energy developers with up to US$50 million in investment funds to support solar project development and focuses on building resilient, distributed energy in the tourism sector.
Under the program’s largest activity, the Jamaica Energy Resilience Alliance will focus on reducing key barriers to solar energy and battery storage adoption among Jamaican hotels and other businesses. The alliance will directly engage with these organizations to understand the business case and technical feasibility of installing solar on their sites, provide informational resources to inform decisions and demystify the installation processes, and provide channels for accessing financing from alliance partners. The program will also offer training for Jamaican solar installers to strengthen the sector through workforce development.
