meeco in the final tender stage for PV project on Tortola

Experienced in pioneering and realizing clean energy projects in the Caribbean meeco has successfully entered the final round in a PV energy tender for Tortola, located in the heart of the British Virgin Islands. A renowned investment group jointly with the Government has planned a utility-scale PV project in the Cox Heath area in the west of Tortola in order to shave-off energy costs and to initiate the energy transition as a part of its National Energy Transition Strategy.

The National Energy Strategy, which involves the Territorial energy plan, stipulates near, medium and long-term measures. Cox Heath area represents one of the near-term projects. Currently, an assessment study proves the feasibility of a PV plant in this territory. The project will be arranged as a power purchase agreement (PPA). The contract stipulates that the local energy provider BVI Electricity Corporation will purchase the generated energy from the solar system provider.


A renewable energy solution shall shave-off energy costs and initiate the energy transition on the British Virgin Islands.


With our experience in realizing large-scale PV energy plants in the region, among them the 3 MWp solar plant at the V.C.Bird International Airport Antigua as well as the 4MWp Bethesda project in Antigua for Apua, we are optimistic and see ourselves as well-situated for having a fair chance with this tender. Our various, customised renewable energy solutions meet the local conditions on the island. We are perfectly aware of the weather conditions of remote islands and know how to build robust and high-performing solar solutions. From our strategic consulting and project planning services through top-tier PV technology to maintenance, online monitoring and capacity building and training of local workers – we offer the whole package from one provider.
