Why Solar Energy
The cost of solar electricity in the Caribbean is typically less the 1/3 the cost of electricity from fossil-fuel utilities or a diesel powerplant. The cash break-even can be as short as 2 years, delivering an Internal Rate of Return exceeding 50%, and the system will have lifetime positive cash flow. A financed systems deliver immediate reduction in expenses with no initial capital investment – making a solar energy system a better investment than the stock market, with less risk!
One of our favorite private-island clients told us on his “day one” that it was time he invested in something that would actually pay for itself.
A solar-energy system requires almost no maintenance. There are no moving parts, no noise, no permitting difficulties, and no preparation required in advance of a hurricane. It is clean and quiet, simply delivering electricity with no pollution or carbon emissions.
