Bodden Town solar farm project on ice for now

Cayman’s first commercial-scale solar farm is behind schedule, and CUC said  it doesn’t know when the 20-acre farm may be complete.

In May, CUC and US partner firm Entropy broke ground on the five megawatt facility, calling it a watershed event in the country’s slow crawl away from fossil fuels.

CUC told Cayman 27 it has done its part, having completed interconnection facilities for the Bodden Town project, including a new line to the facility. Some reports indicate the completion date may be pushed back to next spring.

CUC did not confirm that date, but instead issued a statement.

“Entropy has indicated to CUC that while they are still working on the project, they are behind schedule. We will advise on a new completion date when we are in a position to do so,” said a spokesperson.

Cayman 27 reached out to North Carolina based Entropy, who didn’t reply to our request for comment.
