Cayman Brac to build windmills next year

June 4, 2008 - Cayman Brac will begin installing windmills on The Bluff next year, seeking to erect as many as 10 of the 199-foot towers, supplying between 30 percent and 40 percent of the island’s 3.3 megawatt electricity requirements.

“We have definitely put this on the fast track, and are looking for installation in ’09,” said Jonathan Tibbetts, General Manager of Cayman Brac Power and Light.

“We have earmarked a plot of land, and with the price of oil, well, we are at the point on the Brac where we need to forge ahead to get alternative energy,” he said. “We want something on the ground and running next year.”
