The Jasmine palliative and hospice-care facility now will have lower operating costs following a donation of a 10KW solar system by the Nickason family of West Bay.

Jasmine stated in a press release that the complimentary installation was performed by Affordable Solar, APEC Engineering supplied the structural reports, and Jeffery Woods produced the electrical drawings at no cost for this project.

The power generated by the solar panels is fed back to the Caribbean Utilities Company’s distribution grid. The Jasmine facility then receives credit on its monthly utility bill for the generated power through CUC’s CORE programme.

The hospice-care centre estimates that the solar panels will save it up to $450 per month on utility costs.
