The shovel-ready project, when built out, will be the largest renewable energy project in the Caribbean.

In addition, it will add 900 direct jobs during the construction phase and over 1,000 indirect jobs will be created for suppliers, transport, accommodations, etc. The $305 million project will be located in, and provide substantially to the tax base of the municipalities of Guanica and Lajas.
